Randomize - statement of language VBScript

Description:
Initializes the random-number generator.
Syntax:
Randomize [number]
Number that represents the seed
Note:
Randomize uses number to initialize the Rnd function's random-number generator, giving it a new seed value. If you omit number, then the value returned by the system timer is used as the new seed value.

If Randomize is not used, then the Rnd function (with no arguments) uses the same number as a seed the first time it is called, and thereafter uses the last generated number as a seed value.

To repeat sequences of random numbers, call Rnd with a negative argument immediately before using Randomize with a numeric argument. Usage of Randomize with the same value for number does not repeat the previous sequence.

  Response = MsgBox(nValue & " " & "Generate random value between 1 and 6", vbYesNo)
Loop While Response = vbYes
