How to Select Randomly between a range of numbers

I have 20 fields, and I want to select one to highlight in a random manner.  (I'm trying to build a "wheel" of sorts to select a number of points to play a game). This will return up to a two digit number: Int ( random * 100) However, there are a lot of numbers greater than 20. How can I pick just between 1 - 20? Would it be easier to have 20 records versus 20 fields?

 

Many thanks for any great ideas!

To select a random number between 1 and 20 (inclusive), use =

Int ( Random * 20 ) + 1

Very likely so. Hard to be sure without knowing the purpose (what happens after the selection).
