Word text generator for Lorem Ipsum

Regularly I need Word documents with example text. Word has a example text generator feature which creates text like “Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetuer …” or “On the Insert tab, the galleries include items that are designed …” or “The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog. The quick brown fox …”.

Simply start Word and type =lorem(3,10) and press Enter

Word 2010, lorem ipsum function

This results in:

Word 2010, lorem ipsum result

There are some options you can use:

  • =lorem(p, l) where p is the number of paragraphs and l the number of lines per paragraph.
  • =rand(p,l) provides the same functionality but using different text “On the Insert tab, the galleries include items that are designed …
  • =rand.old(p,l) also provides the same functionality using different text “The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog. The quick brown fox …

Maybe you already knew, maybe not. I was looking for the “The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog. The quick brown fox …” text and thought lets share!
