Just a quick follow-up... You will probably want to set the random number seed prior to running scramble. Also, I neglected to use quietly statements and therefore scramble will generate useless messages, so you should probably always call it as -quietly scramble-

p.s. sorry about forgetting to shorten to original post in my prior message

It seems like you want something similar to -permute- except you want to permute all of the variables, not just one. Here's a short program that will scramble all of the variables in your dataset. You can usel this within your own program and perform a monte carlo simulation (check out -simulate-).
