When creating a first draft document or template, it is sometimes useful to add dummy text to act as a placeholder or to test the document. To insert dummy text into your Word document, type =rand () and then press Enter. Word will then create the dummy text. By default, the text contains three paragraphs, each containing five sentences. To insert a defined amount of text, type =rand (p,s) where p is the number of paragraphs you require and s is the number of sentences per paragraph.
