Sampling from two distributions using the same random number

Sampling from two distributions using the same random number

Hi,

I'm trying to sample sequentially from 2 distributions using the same random number. This is to give me 2 properties (for each entity) which are correlated, yet separate.

In Excel this would be relatively straight forward, as we could create the one random variable for each entity, and use this to sample from both distributions. However, in Simul8 I'm unable to control this.

We're currently using empirical distributions / probability profiles.

Has anyone succeeded in managing to do this? Any suggestions would be appreciated.
