Found this about it here (http://www.sashadesign.com/comments/787/)
"It looks like an Easter egg, but it is only a not-well documented feature of MS Word. If you would like to insert a dummy text in to a document using MS Word, you can do so by typing =rand() and pressing ENTER. You can also pass variables to the rand() function, rand(p,s), where p is the number of paragraphs and s is the number of sentences that you want to appear in each paragraph. Neat, eh?

Excel 97 (Excel 8)

Excel's 97's easter egg is the most impressive that I've ever seen. Follow these steps:

1. Open a new workbook
2. Press F5
3. Enter X97:L97 and press Enter
4. Press Tab
5. Press Ctrl+Shift and click the Chart Wizard button on the toolbar.

You'll be greeted with a full-screen animated image. Use the mouse to move around.

Trigger the egg. You'll be looking at a purple 3D landscape. Use the mouse to "fly" over the landscape (the mouse changes direction, left button moves forward and left button moves backwards). Fly around a bit and you'll see a grey stone pyramid. Fly to the side of the pyramid that's black and you'll see the credits scroll by.

NOTE: If this doesn't work, select the Tools Options command, then click the Transition tab. Remove the checkmark from Transition navigation keys and click OK. Then try it again.
