I forget who from this forum mentioned about using a random number to choose which FS flight to go with when flying, but I've started doing something similar.
I choose destination from a Random #, and then fly from previous destination to the new one using flight schedules I can find. I'm currently making a Perth to Ulsan, South Korea trip via Kuala Lumpor.

Hey Spark, that was me
I too am developing a spreadsheet to generate similar to what you're doing.
The first spreadsheet I put together had a list of 60,000+ flights on it by aircraft type, airline, IFR/VFR, etc.. When a generated random number matched the corresponding list-number of the flight in the list, it posted the details to an output screen.
The second spreadsheet I am looking at basically gives me a random origin and a random destination. It is then up to me to find my way between those two points. If I can, I want to incorporate all the flight plans that I have so that I can plan the trip from start to end.
