Creating dummy text in WORD

  Philbat 00:35 25 May 2003

there is a facility in WORD whereby you can create "dummy text" by simply entering a key command. The text is the "The quick brown fox jumped over ... etc" repaeed as required

Unfortunately I've not used the faciliy for ages nad have forgotten the command - can anyone help please?

The command is =rand(5,10) and press enter.

You can, of course, create your own dummy text. Just type in what you would like to use, then highlight it and go to Insert, Autotext, New. Give the text a short name, say, Dummy, and then click OK. To use it, type in Dummy or whatever name you called it and press F3.

Many thanks for your very prompt responses - I used to subscribe to PC Magazine when it was in existence so that's probably where I initially got the information from.

This time I've made a careful note of the method.
