I have looked at all the other random number questions on the forum, and have yet to find something that relates to my case. How would I generate a random number between -1 and 1?
Thanks in advance.

Oh, my gosh. I can't believe I didn't see that before. Sometimes it is the simple math that causes the most trouble. Thanks much for the help!
