Word 2003 Essential Training
Video Duration: 0s 6h 30m Beginner


View Course Description

Word 2003 Essential Training with David Rivers is a movie-based tutorial for users who are either new to working with MS Office Word 2003, or those upgrading from a previous version of Microsoft Word. This workshop begins with a basic overview of the application and quickly advances to cover text formatting, styles, automatic text features, find/replace, proofing, shared workspaces, printing (including envelopes and labels) importing graphics, working with templates, customizing the toolbar and much more. Exercise files accompany the training, allowing you to follow along and learn at your own pace.

Please Note: Word 2003 Essential Training lessons are demonstrated on Microsoft Office 2003 for Windows. Due to differences in the Windows and Mac interfaces the lessons are not entirely consistent with Office X for Mac. The fundamentals of Word are similar on both the Windows as well as Macintosh platforms, such that users of Office X Word on the Mac can still learn the fundamentals of Word from these tutorials. As well, Mac OS X customers can purchase or view this title on a Macintosh.

Topics include:
  • Creating and saving documents
  • Formatting text
  • Styles
  • Formatting document pages
  • Using find and replace
  • Printing documents, envelopes and labels
  • Working with graphics
  • Working with tables
  • Working with templates
  • Office integration
