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. We recommend you take the folder of exercise files and drag it and drop it on your Desktop so that you can work with them in the course. If you open the Exercise Files folder what you'll find is a separate folder for each chapter. So, for example, when we're in Chapter 5 and I ask you to open a file, you would open the Ch05 folder and then choose the file.
One quick word here; by the time we are at the end of this course we have many templates that we've saved. If I double-click to open a template, the template itself won't open. Instead, Microsoft Word will create a new document based on that template. So to be specific, New is what happens when I simply double-click, Open is what happens when I choose Open explicitly from the menu. So if you start out here in the folder and want to open a file, if it's a template, don't simply double-click. Right-click and choose Open to open that template as a template for editing in Microsoft Word 2007.
I'll remind you of this as we go along in the course. As we use files, please note whether you're being asked to save a file or not. When in doubt, go ahead and save it and give it another name so that you can find that file later, when you want to find it, even if I don't need you to pick it up and use it again. If you are a Monthly subscriber or Annual subscriber to lynda.com, you don't have access to these exercise files. But you can follow along with your own assets that you create from scratch. For example, if you have a form that you want to work on, this would be a great time to do it.
Pull up that file and let's work with it together, as you create a new form in Microsoft Word 2007: Forms in Depth. Let's get started!
