How do I setup a formula in a cell to randomly give me the result of Black or White?

Thank you.

Move date out one month or year
Use =EDATE(A2,1) for one month later. Use EDATE(A2,12) for one year later.

Hi

For ex.:

=IF(RANDBETWEEN(0,1),"Black","White")

If you want to use the RAND function (instead of RANDBETWEEN), why not eliminate the call out to the ROUND function...

=IF(RAND()<0.5,"Black","White")
