I was trying to use the data analysis tools to do a sampling of 150 records of the 300 records on a file. The problem is that when I do a random sampling some of the numbers repeat. Is there a way to get a proper sampling without the numbers repeating?

Thx.

Can a formula spear through sheets?
Use =SUM(January:December!E7) to sum E7 on all of the sheets from January through December
Apply an Advanced AutoFilter to your data list consisting of 300 rows. Specify a 2-row, single column Criteria range with the 1st row blank and the 2nd contain the formula, =RAND()<0.5.
