MS Word Hidden Text Generator

Thursday, August 2, 2007

Our favorite document editor, MS Word, has a hidden function! This is called the RAND function, oftentimes called an Easter Egg, and sometimes feared as a virus. It is actually a Word function that's undocumented in the online Help, but documented in the MS Knowledge Base.

According to the article, this function:
Microsoft Word allows you to quickly insert sample text into a document. To do this, type =rand() in the document where you want the text to appear, and then press ENTER.

The inserted text is that hardy perennial: The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog, which contains every letter in the English alphabet.

The first number is the number of paragraphs, and the second the number of sentences per paragraph.

Here's how to do it:

Open a new document file
Type =rand (X,Y) where X and Y are random numbers
Press Enter

Surprising, huh?

    Using a grandmother's beloved pearls to make keepsakes on her three granddaughters or a few of your respective friend's favorite
    things as inspiration for any special birthday gift;
    you'll find yourself with one more answer for that all too common question, how will you make jewelry. Another idea is gathering the information of everybody's
    birth month that will probably be represented inside ring or necklace, and purchasing birthstones accordingly.

    The prices with the wholesale jewelers are low as in comparison to retailers therefore
    one wants to get bulk jewelry its always better to acquire from wholesale dealers.
