Whether it’s a short story, a product catalog, a technical manual, or a business report, every document needs a compelling format. Although the content and the length may differ, long documents have similar formatting challenges. In Word 2007: Formatting Long Documents, David Rivers uses his 20 years of training expertise to demonstrate efficient methods of formatting entire documents and making changes to specific sections and pages. He covers the details of how to use field codes and building blocks to streamline the workflow, and shares best practices for producing printed documents with a professional look. Exercise files accompany the course.
Just before we begin our work with long documents in Word 2007, there is one more item to discuss, and that is the Exercise Files. If you are a premium subscriber or if you've purchased this title on CD-ROM, you have access to the Exercise Files. The same files I'm going to be working with as we move through the various chapters in this title. So if you like to follow along with me, you might consider placing those Exercise Files in a convenient locations such as your Desktop and that's exactly what I'm going to do. Now I have downloaded mine to My Documents folder, so I'm going to locate them there. If you have got the Exercise Files on the CD-ROM you will want to locate them on your CD-ROM by going to your Start button, and you will select Computer and once you have found those Exercise Files you will copy them to your computer, which I have already done by downloading them directly into My Documents folder. So I'm going to go there.
Here you can see that zipped folder called Exercise Files. Once it's on your computer, like I have here in My Documents folder, I can double-click the zipped folder to display the contents, which is the actual folder called Exercise Files. That's what I want on my desktop. So I'm going to click and drag it there. The easiest way to get my Exercise Files to my Desktop. You will notice the plus sign, Copy to Desktop. That means when I let go, I have actually placed a copy here on my Desktop of those Exercise Files. I've still got the originals here where I downloaded them in that zipped folder.
So I can close this window knowing I've still got my originals, and this is the copy of the Exercise Files I'm going to be working with in this title. If I double-click on this folder, I'll notice that there are many sub-folders and they are broken down into chapters, as we move through the various chapters in this title, I'll be guiding you on which folder to go to and which file to open. So for now I'm going to close up this window. I have got my Exercise Files ready to go. If by the way, you are not a premium subscriber or you don't have the CD ROM, don't worry about it. You can still learn a whole lot by using your own documents, or by simply sitting back and watching.
