Join Gini von Courter for an in-depth discussion in this video What you should know before watching this course, part of Word 2016: Forms in Depth.
- There are only a couple of things you need to be successful in this course. First, you need some software and specifically, you need Word 2016 if you're going to work along with me. If you don't have Word 2016, if for example, you have Word 2016 for Mac or if you have Word 2010, then you'll find a course similar to this course, a form development course for your version of Word in the Lynda.com training library but this course is for Word 2016, some Windows version of that software.
This is not a beginning course. I'm assuming that you have some prior experience, some skills working with a relatively recent version of Word in some platform. You don't have to be a Word 2016 expert. You don't have to have worked previously with Word 2016, but in some version of Word, you should be able to create a document, save that document, create and manipulate a table. If you're new to Word or if you haven't worked with recent versions of Word, if you're upgrading a big jump, for example, from 2007 or 2010, then you might consider spending a little time in the Word 2016 Essential Training course, also in the Lynda.com training library, but if you have software to work along with me and you have skills in a recent version of Word, you're going to be just fine.
