Assign Random Number For Each Distinct Item

Hello, 

I have a table with document numbers and $ amounts. Some document numbers have multiple amounts, so those numbers repeat within the table. 
I'd like to assign random numbers to each distinct document number. Is there a way to do a FOREACH() type formula that will assign the RAND() function to each distinct value in my document number column? 

Example Output:

Rand()Doc Number$ Amount
.9921100
.992189
.87622000
.653341
.6533200

I think my solution is to pull in the document numbers into a separate table, remove duplicates, assign random numbers, and then create a relationship between the distinct table and the table with duplicates. Still open to other ideas if someone has a better solution.
