FORMULA
1. Sales invoice
All invoices numbered 0001 to 8274
=RANDBETWEEN(1,8274)
All bills of lading numbered 18221 through 29427 (if a random number table is used, the left-most digit “2” can be dropped)

A pair of random numbers, where the first random number is the page number (1-20), and the second random number is the line number on the page (1-50)
