Say I've got a list of words:

Apple
Pineapple
Pear
Banana

I want to randomise the order of the words. How do I go about getting it done?

Excel, HTML, javascript, anything.

As long as I get the output.

Generate random numbers in excel using this method:-

in one column. Put the list of words in the next column then sort on the random number.

HTH.
