    It's not a field, but a formula. In an empty paragraph, type =RAND() and press Enter. You can also type =RAND(m, n) where m and n are integer numbers. For example =Rand(2,6) will result in 2 paragraphs with 6 sentences "The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog." each.
    =RAND() without arguments is equivalent to =RAND(3,5).
