Am working on an online examination system. I have ordered the question output with "ORDER BY 1 ASC" and it follows as its appears in the database. But I want the output to be randomly generated so that each time the examinee logs in, different question number comes first.

Assuming your web server is running with PHP, there is a rand() function that you can use to generate a random number for each entry, and sort it by that. Here is the manual page: http://php.net/manual/en/function.rand.php

since you want to create a random questionare you will need all the questions in order from min - max numbers

you will use the rand(min,max); command for this is already given By rubberman
