I am going to wrap up my short articles on non-trigonometric Transaction SQL math functions. Most, if not all, of these functions have been in the product before the release of SQL Server 2005. I am very proud of my daughter making the advance math class in sixth grade. I am dedicating these blogs to her hard class work and love of the subject. Today, I will be exploring the RAND() function. This function takes an optional seed number in integer format. It returns a pseudo-random float value from 0…
