  • 3. Typing =rand(12,5) in Word 2007 inserts a bunch of text. Why?
    In an article on, showing how to create a custom footer in Word 2007 and save it as a Building Block, the author says to type: =rand(12,5) to insert a few paragraphs of text. Sure enough, it did. The text appears to be from a Word Help file. I've searched high and low for use of the equal sign followed by a function and argument, to no avail. It's not a field code, for it lacks the curly braces. I tried other arguments -- the second seems to specify the number of lines returned. I'm inclined to try other functions but might just luck out and find the one that erases all the docx files. What is this feature?

It would be nice to have a red-line feature in Word.  I correct a large 
number of documents and have to show the deletions and changes. The 
strike-out feature is available for deletions, but there is no equivalent for 
showing the modifications (red-line).  I could always paint the changes, but 
this is a feature which does not print correctly in a text environment.

Word's track changes feature will show both deletions and insertions. It
sounds like you need to change your track changes options so that the
insertions are shown as you wish - you can choose a text effect (for
example, underlining) as well as the colour. You can also (or alternatively)
show change bars in the margins.

The user interface for track changes has changed radically over recent Word
versions, so if you need further advice please give the version you are

2.Compare program in Word--need redlining feature like WordPerfect

I am working on a large draft document that another department is also 
working on and they will be sending over their version of this document and I 
need to compare documents and incorporate their changes into ours--the 
documents are about 150 pages long and turnaround time is eight hours or 
less.  While experimenting with Word and the compare feature, I find it 
unsatsfactory in my limited knowledge to be able to do this.  There may be 
very extensive additions and deletions and I need to know as quickly as 
possible to format the original document and get it to final in the shortest 
amount of time possible without having to scrutinze each line on each page.  
The comments along the margins in the Word program are confusing and not 
conducive to the process I need to take the document through.
