    Dummy Text (Office 2000)

    I once saw a formula that could be typed into a word document that gave so many words to a sentence and so many sentences to a paragraph. It was something like: "=?????(5,5)", where ? was the text I cannot remember!. The numbers refer to sentences and paragraphs. The text that appeared was (I think) 'the quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog' and was repeated et al. Anybody got any ideas?

    Regards

    Luckily, "quick brown fox" doesn't occur in many posts on this board. The answer is in <!post=Post #22460,22460>Post #22460<!/post>.

    Thank you for that. Just what I was after.
    Typing in 'quick brown fox' into a search, just did not occur to me!

    By the way, if you really want to save some dummy paragraphs that include different types of formatting, section breaks, etc., just type or copy your own once. Then save it as an AutoText entry.
