Function definition: (Copy & paste into FileMaker's Edit Custom Function window)
This function generates a random signed interger value (or acctually as big a number as FMP allows it to be) streching across zero if a negative start-param and positiv stop-param is givven.
The value returned will be inside or equal to the start and stop params sent to the function. The stop-param must always be larger then the start param!
I commonly use this function as an addition to script step "GoToRecord[ NumberByCalculation ]" wich make a easy way of selecting a random record. The function call would the look like this:
RandomInteger( 1 ; get(foundcount) )
Simple but effective, enjoy!
