 I "seriously" thought you were saying you could program. The "draw" is simply iterating through the list of items (a "for" loop); and then executing a "RAND" function if there are takers. The "logistics" of "having takers available" has nothing to do with the "drawing program" and any "list" you may produce saying who got what. It would take less than a second for 700 items. You said: 1) You "have the items in a database". Don't you know how to read them? (Part 1) 2) They "indicate their choices" which you "merge, blah blah" (Part 2) 3) Rnd Function - Access Your (output) list could even have a "second choice" if the winner did not show up to claim their prize. Yes, they claim them; you don't chase them down or wait for them after you "publish" the list of winners. You do intend to create a winner's list? Or is this word of mouth? Oh ... and you don't "give" them a number; you "assign" it as you "merge them" (or whatever). You need a name, you assign a number that you can later randomly generate. I suggest 1,2,3,4, ... # of takers for "that" item. If you knew anything about "indexes" (relative or otherwise), you wouldn't even need to assign a "physical" number; it would be based on "position"; assuming an unordered list. Note, nowhere is there any extra "draw" time. It was only in wine that he laid down no limit for himself, but he did not allow himself to be confused by it. ― Confucian Analects: Rules of Confucius about his foodmodified 26-Aug-21 10:53am.
