Can anyone tell me the command which will enter "the quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog" in Word

I have used it in the past but cannot recall it

=rand(5,10)

you can change the 5 and the 10 to add or reduce the number of instances. Don't forget the = sign.

Maj is quite right, where 5 would be the number of occurences of the phrase and 10 the number of paragraphs.

  MAJ 22:35 08 Mar 2003

I think that's the other way round, AndyJ, 5 Paragraphs and ten instances of the phrase in every paragraph.

You just type in

=rand(5,10)

and press Enter

I see my invisible tablets are working just fine. ;-)

Didn't mean to hijack your advice ;-)

You didn't mate, I'm just in a giddy mood this morning. ;-)

Tried =rand(5,10) enter

Produced nothing, what else should I know

Just try =rand() then, The Axe. Don't forget to press the Return key on your keyboard.
