I don’t know where I found this tip, but today one of my guys was troubleshooting a printing issue and needed to create a 30 page document easily. He did this with a simple copy and past of a one line and quickly had the document. Later he was telling me about it and I recalled this cool “Easter Egg” in Word that has been there for some time. Basically if you type in “=rand(99,9)” into word (without the quotes) it will generate about 11 pages of text. Do this a few times and you have one heck of a big document that you can use to test your printer out.
Why can I remember tidbits like this when I can’t remember to pickup Milk on the way home for my wife? Anyway – hope this helps someone out there.
