SeedRandom

FilledSmallSquareSeedRandom[n] resets the pseudorandom number generator, using the integer n as a seed.

FilledSmallSquareSeedRandom[ ] resets the generator, using as a seed the time of day.

FilledSmallSquare You can use SeedRandom[n] to make sure you get the same sequence of pseudorandom numbers on different occasions.

FilledSmallSquare You can also use SeedRandom["string"], although the seed set in this way may be different on different computer systems.

FilledSmallSquare See The Mathematica Book: Section 3.2.3.
