be sought for with ardor and diligence.

Courses - Microsoft Word 203
Description: Intermediate Microsoft Word
Running Time: 70 minutes
Pre-Requisites: Word 202
Versions:
We use Word XP in this course, but the lessons are valid for all versions of Word from 95 to 2003. There are cosmetic changes in Word 2007. Order before 7/31/2017 to get a FREE upgrade to our 2007 version when released!
 
Word 203 covers the following:
  • Styles
  • Using Word's Built-In Styles
  • Creating Your Own Custom Styles
  • AutoFormat
  • AutoCorrect

We begin by learning all about Word's built-in Styles - what Styles are, how Styles work, the different types of Styles, and why you want to use Styles in your documents. For example, if you use Heading styles properly in your book, you can quickly and easily change all of the headings throughout your document simply by changing the Style's setting.

Next you will learn how to create your own Custom Styles. These can be used for modifying existing Word Styles, or creating own complete Style libraries.

Again, notice how I've changed my entire document just by modifying the Style once. No format painting or copying and pasting. Further editing is just that simple. Change the entire look and feel of your document with just a couple of clicks or keystrokes.

You'll also learn how to create your own Character Styles to modify the look and feel of just a specific word or group of words that gets repeated throughout your document. Again, the main benefit is you can easily change the style later and your whole document updates itself.

We will then study AutoFormat and AutoFormat As You Type. Both are used to change the format of your text - either as you enter it, or manually at your command.

Next we'll learn about AutoCorrect which is generally used to fix certain mistakes that happen when you're typing - and not necessarily just spelling errors. For example, ever type in the word "The" but you accidentally left the CAPS key down too long and it came out "THe"? Well that's just one example of something AutoCorrect will fix. I'll show you how to configure it for much more.

Don't miss this class. The section on Styles alone is well worth the price of the course. Mastering Styles will make production of large documents with a uniform, professional look and feel so much easier!
