Good day colleagues! There are several blocks of text (3-4 words). Such blocks of about 50 - 60, and they are unique. Roughly speaking, they must be shuffled so that there are different texts from these blocks.

I am sure there is a service for such tasks, if anyone has come across suggest plz.


Hello. If you mean an online service, then I can suggest this one: Ready (mixed) text can be displayed as a list, table, or separated by commas. Sentences can then be highlighted based on first capital letters. :)

Thank you, very interesting collection of services.
I tried "Shuffle the order of a list". Not quite right, but maybe...
Also interested in "Shuffle letters in words". It's a joke, but I'll put it somewhere.

Actually, it's a one-time thing. Thought I might use some kind of php script.


Well, if it's just a one-time thing... Kutools for Excel can help you.
It has this functionality. The trial version is 60 days. It's enough if you want to process something once.


I don't even know of programs that could help with this.
If I had to do this work, it would be done by hand. After all, these blocks should be similar in essence in order to get a readable text. Yes, and 60 blocks is not so much.


there are three ways to change the location of rows in the Excel table: by copying, by pasting, and by moving the mouse. All of these methods are easy to use and accessible to any user, and their differences are in the time spent, as well as the number of actions and tools necessary for their implementation.

moving with the mouse:
Thanks to this method, you can transfer data to a new location as quickly as possible. Only the mouse and keyboard are used for this. Let's look at how it all works.

On the coordinate panel, left-click on the number of the row that we need to move.
We hover the cursor over the upper border of any cell of the selected row, while it should be transformed into an arrow with pointers in four different directions. Holding the Shift key on the keyboard, we move the line to any place we need using the left mouse button.
Note that if the Shift button is not pressed, then data will be replaced instead of transferring, and confusion will arise in the table.
As we have seen, the method of moving with the mouse allows you to move the line to the specified location without unnecessary actions and additional tools, minimizing time costs. The most important thing is not to forget about the Shift key.
