Quick tips to get some text into Office…


To quickly create some text in a word 2007 document to send something decent to a printer just type: (not tried this on old versions)


“=rand(20)”  (without the quotes)


 


To generate random numbers in Excel try


“=RAND()*100”

=rand() was an old way of getting text into Word documents


 


NOW . . . under Word 2007 there’s a newerer method.


 


=lorem()


 


This is “Lorem” text sample that is more evenly distrubted than “The quick brown fox . . .””


 


Thanks for the update Blake, much appreciated :)
