Whether you need to create a word form for your own use for a specific purpose, or a form to share or distribute to others. This course will help you meet your objective. We'll start with simple forms using Word's table feature to create layout tables. Then adding content controls to capture text, dates, images, whatever data you want your users to enter.

I'll show you how to save your document as a template and share it with others by e-mail. Or by setting up a work group templates folder, so that everyone in your office can use the templates that you create.
