Word: Random filler for confidential documents

March 1, 2018

Have you ever needed to send a Word document that needs fixing to a Word expert outside your organisation, but are concerned about confidentiality issues? If so, the good people at Office Watch have created a macro that replaces all text with randomly generated letters, but preserves all the formatting, numbering etc. that your Word guru needs to check.

The full VBA code and a description of how the macro works is here: https://office-watch.com/2018/replace-confidential-text-filler-word/

NOTE: DO NOT use this on your real document — make a copy, and run it on the COPY ONLY, then send the copy to the person outside your organisation.
