function:RAND

The *RAND()* functions return a random integer number.

- RAND(N) returns a random integer from 0 to, but not including, N.
- RAND(A,B) returns (v9.0+) a random integer number from A to, including, B.

In the one parameter version, N must be greater than or equal to 1.

In the two parameter version, A must not equal B, and if B is less than A, they are implicitly swapped.

Note: Unlike all the other variants of *RAND()* and RANDOM(), RAND(A,B) may return the larger number. This makes RAND(1,6) return the same as a regular dice for example, a number from 1-6 inclusive, which matches what you would normally want.
