This is not at egg. This is documented at support.microsoft.com/support/ kb/articles/Q180/6/85.ASP IT SAYS: Word includes a way to quickly insert sample text into a document. To do this, type the following =rand() and then press ENTER. The inserted sample text is as follows: The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog. The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog. The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog. The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog. The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog. NOTE: This feature is disabled when the "Replace text as you type" option is turned off. (To turn this option off, click AutoCorrect on the Tools menu, click the AutoCorrect tab, and click to clear the "Replace text as you type" check box.) MORE INFORMATION By default, each paragraph contains five sentences. You can control how many paragraphs and sentences you want by adding numbers inside the parentheses. The =rand() function has the following syntax =rand(p,s) where p is the number of paragraphs and s is the number of sentences you want to appear in each paragraph.

I could use any number I wanted. eg: =rand(10,9). If you multiply the two numbers, you get the number of repeated sentences the egg created.

In microsoft office 2007 BETA, =rand() now says: On the Insert tab, the galleries include items that are designed to coordinate with the overall look of your document. You can use these galleries to insert tables, headers, footers, lists, cover pages, and other document building blocks. When you create pictures, charts, or diagrams, they also coordinate with your current document look. You can easily change the formatting of selected text in the document text by choosing a look for the selected text from the Quick Styles gallery on the Home tab. You can also format text directly by using the other controls on the Home tab. Most controls offer a choice of using the look from the current theme or using a format that you specify directly. To change the overall look of your document, choose new Theme elements on the Page Layout tab. To change the looks available in the Quick Style gallery, use the Change Current Quick Style Set command. Both the Themes gallery and the Quick Styles gallery provide reset commands so that you can always restore the look of your document to the original contained in your current template.

In my Russian version of Microsoft Word it sais lots of copies of a phrase "Ñúåøü åù¸ ýòèõ ìÿãêèõ ôðàíöóçñêèõ áóëîê, äà âûïåé ÷àþ." which means "Eat some more of these soft French buns, and drink some tea" I wonder who put that in! lol It's quite amusing.

This was the same text that appears when going to Control Panel / Fonts and open a randomly font to show a font sample look. The definitive 2007 version shows the same text as on Beta and is different that in previous versions.

In other languages the sentence is translated too when you do it. For example, in Brazilian Portuguese, the sentence is "A ligeira raposa marrom ataca o cão preguiçoso", but the translated sentence don't have all words A to Z

Doesn't do anything in office 2007 (windows 7, 64 bit). All I see on the screen after typing "=rand(200,99)" is a document with "=rand(200,99)" at the top.

I tried it with the swedish word. There it standed "Flying snipes searhing for rest on soft tussocks" on swedish badly spelled("Flygande bäckasiner söka hwila på mjuka tuvor", it should be "Flygande beckasiner söker vila på mjuka tuvor").

This really works! If you use the two numbers you are given you'll end up with about 235 pages of it!

The numbers you enter are for the paragraphs, and sentences per paragraph. Go to www.lipsum.com and you can ancient latin text to replace the text used.
