How to create big documents real fast.

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.

  1. Strange though how it uses "The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog". If it were to use "river" instead of "dog" I think you get every letter in the english language. I think this version is missing "v", then again, with river, I think you’re missing a "d".. <sigh>

    I’m going to bed.

  2. "The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog" is famous for having all the letters of the alphabet, I think you OVERlooked the V 🙂
