Dear All,

I need some help in figuring out the codes

I want to assign a random number based on the values of two variables.


My data set looks like this.

ID       Minyear                      Maxyear         
Nancy     1993                        1994
Ramon    1996                        1999
Eva         1992                        1992


I want to create a variable called randomyear such that the year is randomly assignment between minyear and maxyear value.


Thank you for your help.

Nancy
