    Hi does anyone know if there is a way to have QB pull a random sample from a table of data?

    Typically this is done by taking every nth record based on the Record ID# and that is done using the REM function.  can you give me a specific example of the sample that you want to pull.  It is like 10% of the records or do you need 200 random samples.

    Do you need the samples restricted to a certain time period?

    For a quick answer, if you wanted every 20th record, it would be where

    REM([Record ID#], 20) = 0.
