If footoo's link does not satisfy your need, perhaps you could tell us more about exactly what you have and what you are trying to achieve?

Another way is to put your lottery numbers in one column, put RAND() in the next column and fill down.
Sort the two columns by the RAND column and it will randomly sort your numbers.
