Generate a random number of any length

Download and unzip the file linked below directly to your C:\Program Files (x86)\AccuZIP6 5.0 folder.
https://www.accuzip.com/files/forum/genrandom.zip

Import your list, and create a field that you want the number to be stored in using Edit menu>Fields. The field LENGTH determines the highest random number that will be generated. If the field length is 4, then the highest number could be 9999. Character fields are padded with 0, e.g., 0001

Click on Edit>Command, and run this syntax, substituting the word fieldname with the actual field name you created:

=GenRandom("fieldname")


Click Run.

You can then close the command window, and you'll see a random number filling that field, and they will all be 100% unique.

As a new customer of Accuzip, I just wanted to thank you for all of Accuzip’s help and patience with us in preparing this job so well. Our particular thanks to your technicians for multiple support calls and emails with our elementary questions while we learned on-the-job. Frankly, none of us had any experience with postal regulations or mail list technology, so we are especially grateful to have had them as a resource. Please tell them how much we appreciate their help!
