If in A1 I have the integer 1, and in B1 I have the integer 3, and in C1 I want to generate a random number from 1 to 5 which excludes the integers 1 and 3 from these previous two cells, how could I accomplish this?

I looked over the below thread, but it was slightly different, and couldn't figure out how to make it work with my situation

Save as CSV to remove all leading and trailing spaces. It is faster than using TRIM().

Hi

For ex.:

=LARGE((1-COUNTIF(A1:B1,{1,2,3,4,5}))*{1,2,3,4,5},RANDBETWEEN(1,3))
