Delegates will be introduced to the skills required to create a simple professional looking short document.

Various font and paragraph formatting techniques will be applied to ensure the document looks professional.
– Documentation layout and appearance will be significantly improved
– Time-saving through the application of navigation and selection tricks
– The skills required to create, save and retrieve documents can be transferred to other Microsoft products
This Intermediate Microsoft Word course focuses on creating professional-looking short documents, generated efficiently.
Microsoft Word is a highly underestimated program. There are many underlying principles to creating documents, which are often overlooked. The frustrations that arise when Word doesn’t behave as you expect, can generate inefficient working practices and unprofessional looking documents.
Delegates will work with the powerful “Paragraph Mark” to help explain the underlying mechanics of why text appears to move around the document with a “life of its own”. All font and paragraph formatting techniques will be explained. Various pagination techniques will help control which page text appears on, and spelling and formats will be automatically corrected. The mysterious world of “bullets and numbering” will be resolved and basic Headers and Footers inserted. You will not only be able to print the document you have created but also the envelope and/or the label that may accompany it.
The Microsoft Forms and Mail Merge course provides you with the skills to create sophisticated templates that can be used by other people in a team, department or organisation. This will enable you and your team to personalise documents to a large number of people quickly and efficiently. This course will introduce the concept of advanced mail merge features to allow automation of selective merges.
In order to produce consistent-looking documents within an organisation, Word offers the facility to create document “stencils”. You will be using the powerful features of Form Fields for this. Forms can be designed to allow users an easy and simple way of entering information in a Word document. Data collected can be exported to a delimited file type. Files can then be imported into Excel or any database application for further analysis.
