A Free Random Number Generator for Pocket PC

I was searching for a good random number generator for Pocket PC, but I couldn’t find any free ones. There’s a shareware one for $15, but it’s hard to believe that there isn’t anything out there for free.

Then I realized that one can easily create one using Pocket Excel, which comes standard on all Pocket PCs. Simply put the max in cell B1, then paste the following formula into a 10×10 grid: =TRUNC((RAND()*$B$1)+1, 0). This will create a 10×10 grid of random numbers, between 1 and the max.

Pocket Excel

Pocket Excel is actually pretty powerful, supporting a bunch of statistical, financial, and logical functions.
