Years ago for a game I was planning on running, I wrote out by hand a series of tables for rolling up random jobs in a Tramp Freighter style campaign.

I'm now switching a bunch of my analog stuff to digital, and I thought it might be cool to make a quick Excel table that would roll it for you. I've got all of my tables filled, however now I need to program it to select an item from each column and then give a quick report of the job.

Unfortunately, my Excel programming skills are sorely lacking, and my Google-fu has failed me in my search. So I thought I would see if there was anyone in the community that could help me write up the program, and then of course, I would share it so that if there was anyone else who needed to come up with a quick job on the fly for a cash strapped freighter crew to run, they could just load the table real quick and have a random job pop up.

Thanks in advance!
