How do you get Excel, Word, etc. to print a draft copy. (ie. printing 'DRAFT' diagonally behing text on the page?)
 

Excel Facts

Which lookup functions find a value equal or greater than the lookup value?
MATCH uses -1 to find larger value (lookup table must be sorted ZA). XLOOKUP uses 1 to find values greater and does not need to be sorted.

Not diagonally, but:

1. Add a rectangle from the Drawing toolbar.
2. Right click, choose Add Text, enter DRAFT and click away.
3. Right click and choose Format Autoshape.
4. Set your font size etc on the Font tab.
5. On the Colours and Lines tab choose Fill colour No fill, Line colour No line.
6. Set other formatting as desired (eg Alignment).
7. Click OK
