Daily random information

Hello! I would like it to draw a random piece of information from the table and display it in the appropriate place every time I refresh the data. I have a table with 2 columns, index and text. I hope someone has an idea 🙂

Hi @Pan_Forex ,

 You could assign each item a number, then use the RAND function to generate a number within that range of numbers. Create a measure to show the matching item.

Not sure what the use case is for this, but hope it works out for you!

Thank you for your reply. What do you mean by "assign each item a number"?
