    = rand (200,99) (Word 2000)

    Can any one explain? If you type the header into an empty word document something strange happens.

    Thanks

    Mario,

    This is a "feature" of Word that is not in the Help files, but is documented in the Knowledge Base. See WD2000: How to Insert Sample Text into a Document.

    Regards,
    Hans

    The fun part is that different international versions of Word insert local RANDom text ... in Italian Windows for example the sample text begins: "Cantare me o Diva..."

    in German:
    <hr>Franz jagt im komplett verwahrlosten Taxi quer durch Bayern.
    (Franz chases through Bavaria in a completely derelic taxi.)<hr>

    The common denominator in all languages is that each character turns up at least once.
