For years I've used random text at the start of a new Word document when helping beginners.

Upto now, =rand() > Enter has inserted 3 paragraphs comprising 5 sentences of 'The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog'.

I now use Office 2007 which, apparently, doesn't offer 'the quick brown fox . . . ' but, instead, =lorem() > Enter now inserts 'Ipsum Lorem . . .'

MY PROBLEM : neither =rand() or =lorem() works for me. The page remains blank.

There's probably a very simple explanation - can someone help me, please?
