There is actually a list of numbers on what is called "the table of random digits" I had to use it in Statistics...and its a table of random digits basically that were computer generated...kind of neat actually

Are you trying to create a computer program? Or are you just using one? Or are you trying to create this on like a TI calculator?

On a TI calculator there is an application to pick random digits and you can enter how many digits you want and tell it to give you the highest one first...

I'm trying to create it on Vb 6.0. The random number should be stored in a variable. Here is what I got so far.

Option Explicit
Dim random(0 To 6) As Integer
Dim old(0 To 6) As Integer
Dim Index As Integer
Dim I As Integer

Sub generate()

For I = 0 To 6
Random(i) = Int(Rnd * 25 + 1)
If random(i) = old(0 Or 1 Or 2 Or 3 Or 4 Or 5 Or 6) Then
Random(i) = Int(Rnd * 25 + 1)
End If

Old(i) = random(i)
Lblnum(i).Caption = random(i)
Next i

End Sub
Private Sub btnrandom_Click()
Generate
End Sub

This doesn't work. I think I need to create a loop where it loops till it finds a random number that has not been generated before

I don't really know actually...it looks like it should work to me...umm..I'm getting tired and about to head to bed but I will do a little research and ask one of my professors in the morning...but yeah the loop might help but not sure
