Video: Using the exercise files

If you are a premium member of the lynda.com Online Training Library or if you are watching this tutorial on a DVD-ROM, you have access to the exercise files used throughout this title. Let me show you how they're laid out and used. All of the exercise files are in one folder called Exercise Files. In that folder, you see a different folder for each chapter. So for example, in chapter 1, we have two different documents that you'll be using for exercises in the chapter.

Using the exercise files

If you are a premium member of the lynda.com Online Training Library or if you are watching this tutorial on a DVD-ROM, you have access to the exercise files used throughout this title. Let me show you how they're laid out and used. All of the exercise files are in one folder called Exercise Files. In that folder, you see a different folder for each chapter. So for example, in chapter 1, we have two different documents that you'll be using for exercises in the chapter.

There are a couple of optional files as well. I'm going to go back and open up chapter 4. We are going to see a template and one of the things you'll want to note as you go through this course is whether we are opening a template to design it or whether we are opening a new document based on the template to test it. If I double-click this document, I will get a document based on the template. If I want to open the document sitting out here on the desktop or in my folder, I can right click and choose Open and that will open the template itself so I can work on it in Design view.

At the start, you will actually see on the screen what file you're supposed to open when I open it. Within Microsoft Word, it works exactly the same way. When I go to File, I'll see a list that will tell me of something to template or not. When I open a template in Word backstage, it will always show me that I'm in a template. It will end in dotx in Microsoft Word. If you are a monthly subscriber or annual subscriber to lynda.com, you don't have access to these exercise files, but you can always follow along from scratch with your own assets with a form that you want to work on so by the time you're done with the chapter or done with the course, you actually have some forms that you can use in your organization.

Let's get started.
