# I need to create random arrangements of several words, separated

I need to create random arrangements of several words, separated by commas. I would like to be able to pop 4 words into cells (i.e. Ball,Bounce,Happy,Sad) and have them come out with every possible order in which the words can be put. The entire list of combinations should be surrounded by a left and right bracket thingy " { and } " and each combination of the words should be separated by one of these vertical bars "|"

Again, I need every possible combination to come up in this format, in one cell, ready to be copied and pasted... how would I do this?

hello,

I can set this up for you in excel and then post the file for you, so you can see the formula and how it works?

is this what you are looking for?

Yes, if I could just download the sheet, that would be perfect

the order of the words will not be random, they will always show up in the same orders, but each possible combination will be shown, no matter what words you enter and the 1st, 3nd 3rd and 4th

please confirm that this is okay

I don't understand.... I don't need a "random" assortment, I just need EVERY SINGLE combination of words immediately put into that format.

Does that make sense? I will go through a three number example... just substitute a number for a random word.

Cell a2= 1
Cell a3= 2
Cell a3= 3

{1,2,3|1,3,2|2,1,3|2,3,1|3,1,2|3,2,1}

Your original post contains the word random, so I wanted to verify.

When is this needed by?
