    Random name selector software

    Hi

    I am looking for some funky software that you can enter lots of students names into it.. gives a nice visual of names swirling around and when you press enter it selects a name at random ..

    Bit like lotto but with names on a PC ..

    Its so we can use it in assembley for prizes...

    Any ideas..

    Try The Hat - it re-sorts a given list of names which IIRC you can enter from a txt file.

    Re: Random name selector software

    Somewhere I have a VBA program that I wrote for Excel. Goes up and down a list of names and then chooses one randomly - or at least that's what the little one's thought! Fixed it so that it didn't choose the same name twice. I can dig it out if anyone is interested.

    Have a look at this site.

    http://www.classtools.net/main_area/fruit_machine.htm

    Import a list from excel and select fruit machine or typewriter. Random names!

    Hope it helps

    Assign each name a number and then use RANDOM.ORG - True Random Number Service ?
