Winning Documents with Word: Word for Business


Chances are that you have used Microsoft Word at work to write reports and letters, but you might be missing out on skills that can improve your workflow. You've probably created tables before, but did you know that you can create tables from text and text from tables while also integrating Excel formulas like SUM and AVERAGE? If you ever get tired of changing the font and margins in a document, you will love learning how to create a new document with everything just the way you like it so you can start working without fiddling with those options. You may have used Mail Merge once or twice, but did you know it allows you to quickly create personalized letters, mailing labels, and certificates with just a couple of clicks? Finally, you’ll learn to build, edit, and secure a Word form for others to complete and save data.
