Format a Word Without Typing A Document

Have you ever wanted to format your Word Document before you start writing up the document itself? There’s a quick and easy way to have Microsoft Word type up a ‘dummy’ document for you so you can get the formatting done correctly.

First, Open up Word.
(This works in any MS Office 97 and above program).

In Word, have it open a blank document if it hasn’t done so already.

Type in ‘=rand(8,10)’ (without the quotes), then hit enter.

Word will type up random sentences according to the input.
The first number (‘8′), indicates how many paragraphs you want to make.
The second number (’10’) indicates how many sentences you want in each paragraph.

So… for example, if you want to make a document with 9 paragraphs and 4 sentences in each paragraph, you would use this command…

=rand(9,4)

Whether you are writing a newspaper style document or just writing a report, it’s sometimes easier document formatted before you begin. It may not be Word’s most powerful feature. However it can be a useful one if you don’t want to spend all that time formatting a document after it’s completed trying to make a deadline.
