try this

This is something pretty cool...and unbelievable...
At Microsoft the whole team, including Bill Gates, couldn't answer why
this happened!
It was discovered by a Brazilian.
Try it out yourself...

Open Microsoft Word and type
=rand (200,99)
and then press ENTER

And Here is some update

This is not something which Bill Gates doesn't know...

rand() is a Win32 API which is used to generates random numbers.... which is quite common in VC++ programming...

The function '= rand (200,99)' is compiled instead of taken as text.... in MS WORD

The output of this will be a default string 'The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.' which will be displayed (checkout this string contains all the alphabets)

This string will be displayed in 200 lines with 99 times in each line...

Note: If you want MS WORD to read =rand(200,99) as text then do the following in MS WORD:

Format --> AutoFormat --> Options --> AutoCorrect (Tab) --> Uncheck 'Replact text as you type'
