### Transform > Random Data > Triangular

Generates random data from a triangular distribution between two points that you designate.

Use the triangular distribution for random variables that are between two fixed limits. The distribution peaks at a value between the two limits.

### Dialog box items

•Target Column:

Enter a storage column for the generated values. Leave blank to have VisualStat automatically name the target column.

•Sampling:

Choose from the following options:

oSample Size: Enter the number of rows of random data you want to generate.

oDistribution: Select the distribution for the variable.

oSet Seed with: Lets you start a random number sequence with a seed you specify.

•Lower Bound:

Enter the lower bound value you want to use for the triangular distribution.

•UpperBound:

Enter the upper bound value you want to use for the triangular distribution.

•Mode:

Enter the mode value you want to use for the triangular distribution.
