Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

How To: Data Table Random Name

Ok I want to simplify the question as best I can, but in short, I have a data table. Columns are Index (Used as name for rows 0-2), FirstName, LastName.

I want to randomly generate a name that is a combination of a first and a last name. I am going to attach the picture I have now, it works but I have to use the same row for first and last name...but there must be a more efficient way to get this done.

So get two Random rows. First Name from the first row last name from the second row. Unless I missunderstood your Question.

That is correct. Currently there two ways I get it to work is to 1) have a data table with just first names and another with just last...or 2) accept both names coming from the same row.

Maybe a loop scrubbing all columns but I can't figure out how to select columns...
