To help my granson learn to read, I have put all his word's from those he has been given at school into a spreadsheet in excell. My plan is to be able to display one word at a time on the computer monitor and if he get's it right he then needs to press the enter button and get the next RANDOM word from the list.

Can anyone tell me how to do this please, using Excell 2010

Thanks Migwell

Say your words are in Sheet1 cells A1 to A10. In Sheet2 Enter the formula

=INDEX(Sheet1!A:A,RANDBETWEEN(1,10))

This will display a random word. To change the word press F9.

This will include repetition (not a bad thing when learning). To display words without repetition would, I think, require VBA.
