The lorem() function is available in Word 2007 but if you are using a previous version of Office, you may use the good old rand() function to insert any amount of random text in your Word Document.

You can use the rand function to generate random text. To do this, move to a new paragraph and type =Rand(). You will get a collection of placeholder text. If you need more, you can determine the amount of text required by entering the number of paragraphs required in the parentheses, followed by a comma, and the number of sentences you would like in each paragraph.

So for example =rand(1,4) will give you one paragraph with four lines of text.

There are many variations of passages of Lorem Ipsum available, but the majority have suffered alteration in some form, by injected humour, or randomised words which don’t look even slightly believable. If you are going to use a passage of Lorem Ipsum, you need to be sure there isn’t anything embarrassing hidden in the middle of text. All the Lorem Ipsum generators on the Internet tend to repeat predefined chunks as necessary, making this the first true generator on the Internet. It uses a dictionary of over 200 Latin words, combined with a handful of model sentence structures, to generate Lorem Ipsum which looks reasonable. The generated Lorem Ipsum is therefore always free from repetition, injected humour, or non-characteristic words etc.
