    Random Name Generator

    Hello Wondering if someone could help me with a problem. I've got a list of 800 students in Excel, I'm trying to find a script or powerpoint that can link to this to be able to use as a random name generator.

    There are a few out there but I don't really want to have to copy and past each name into each powerpoint slide.

    if there someone out there that could help me with this problem be greatly appreciated

    Can't think how to get this into a PowerPoint to be honest, but on a pure Excel basis it's easy to achieve, and I've attached an example. Simply fill column A with your list of names and every time the spreadsheet recalculates (press F9 to do this on demand) it will show a different name in cell D1.

    Unfortunately if you embed this into a PowerPoint there's no way to get it to recalculate each time, but this might give you something to get started with.

    Teachers use "The Hat" in some of my schools; not sure if it's exactly what you need though.
