Hi Dwayne,

put GenerateRandom(6,10) -- the right parameters in your case

function GenerateRandom pHowMuchNumbers,pRange
   local tRangeList
   -----
   repeat until the number of lines of tRangeList = pHowMuchNumbers
     set the randomSeed to random(100000)
     put random(pRange) into pNum
     if pNum is not among the lines of tRangeList then put pNum & cr 
after tRangeList
   end repeat
   delete char -1 of tRangeList
   return tRangeList
end GenerateRandom

Hope this helps.
