The data generation functions are categorised logically, making it easier to browse them and find them. They can be used as simple functions, or combined in complex formulae.

Note: for some functions, the cell type must be set. For instance, generating dates requires the cell formatting must be set to the relevant date type. To format cells, right click the relevant cells and click "format cells", before selecting the relevant formatting. Cell formatting further provides a greater degree of flexibility and increases the variety of data that can be generated using the data generation functions. The formatting can be specified for some functions within the formula itself, as specified below.

Note: The locale is set to the default US English (en_US) in the following examples, unless otherwise stated.
