OPEN A NEW DOCUMENT TEMPLATE IN MICROSOFT WORD 97 TO 2003

Open A new document template in Ms word 97 to 2003- When you enter and save work in Word, it is called a new DOCUMENT or FILE. By default, Word starts you with a new blank document as soon as you open the program. But you can create additional new files anytime you want.

Every time you open Word, it starts from a Microsoft Word TEMPLATE, a bare bones, ready made document. The blank document that appears when you start Word is actually based on the NORMAL Template, a no-frills template. There are numerous other templates from which you can choose.

For Example, you could find Microsoft Office, letter of recommendation, business resume or marketing resume templates on the Internet if you were writing documents in those areas. In this Tweak All Consultants lesson you will learn two methods for starting new Word files.

CREATE A NEW DOCUMENT FILE (MS WORD 2003)

When you enter and save work in Word, it is called a new DOCUMENT or FILE. By default, Word starts you with a new blank document as soon as you open the program. But you can create additional new files anytime you want.

METHOD 1

1. Use the NEW icon (or button).

The fastest way to create a new file is to click on the NEW icon (it appears as a white blank sheet of paper on the extreme upper left-hand side of the screen).

2. A New File Opens.

A new file opens based on the default NORMAL template. You may immediately start typing. Notice that the default filename (DOCUMENT X, where "X" is the name of the new document until saved with its own file name) appears in the TITLE BAR at the top of the page.

METHOD 2

1. Select file, then the NEW Command.

To open a file based on another template, left click on the FILE menu and then left click on the NEW command.

2. A NEW DOCUMENT column will open on the right of the Word Screen. It gives multiple options. You may choose from the headings NEW, TEMPLATES AND RECENTLY USED TEMPLATES. Click on the option that most closely matches with your current project.

Again, If you don’t see the template you want in Word, then search the Internet. There are many Microsoft Word Templates available.
