Title: New Perspectives on Microsoft Office Word 2003 Tutorial 3

Microsoft Office Word 2003
  • Tutorial 3 Creating a Multiple-Page Report

Set tab stops
  • A tab is the space between columns of text or
    between the margin and text.
  • The tab stop identifies the precise location
    where the text moves when you put a tab in front
    of it.
  • The five major tab-stop alignment styles are
    left, center, right, decimal, and bar.
  • The name of the tab-stop alignment style
    identifies where the text lines up to the tab
  • By default, Word's tab stops are set at every
    one-half inch.

Tab stop styles
Set tab stops using the ruler
  • Use the horizontal ruler to select and move
    existing tab stops.
  • To set new tab stops, click the tab alignment
    selector until the style you want is displayed
    and then click on the horizontal ruler to set the
  • To remove a tab stop, drag it off the horizontal

Formatting a document into sections
  • A section is a unit or part of a document.
  • A section break identifies where one section ends
    and the next section begins.
  • Section breaks should only be inserted when you
    want to change a feature that can be unique to
    each section.
  • These features are the page orientation, margins,
    headers, footers, and vertical alignment. For
  • In a long document, you can add section breaks
    between chapters to change the name of the
    chapter in the header or footer
  • In business documents, you can change the page
    orientation to landscape to display a wide table

How to add a section break
Recognize a section break
Change the vertical alignment of a section
  • The vertical alignment identifies where text is
    displayed between the top and bottom margins.
  • The vertical alignment options are flush at the
    top, flush at the bottom, or centered
  • The most common vertical alignment is flush at
    the top, but you might want to change it for a
    specific page.
  • To change the vertical alignment for part of a
    document, that part must be in a separate
  • Then, select the Page Setup option from the File
  • Click the Layout tab and select the type of
    vertical alignment.

Change vertical alignment
Center a page between the top and bottom margins
  • There are several reasons you might want to
    center text between the top and bottom margins.
  • Title pages, stand-alone graphics, tables in a
    business document, or brief letters are good
    candidates for centering text vertically.
  • If the page you want to center vertically in part
    of a longer document, make sure that the page is
    in a separate section.

Center a page vertically
Create a header with page numbers
  • A header is text printed at the top of every
  • A footer is text printed at the bottom of every
  • Word has great flexibility in handling headers
    and footers.
  • You can specify unique headers and footers for
    the first page of a document, for even and odd
    pages in a document without sections, for each
    section, and for even and odd pages within
  • Specifying different headers and footers for even
    and odd pages enables you to place items like
    page numbers on the outside margin of every page
  • Specifying different headers and footers for each
    section enables you to include items that change,
    such as chapter titles, in the header or footer
  • You can even have some pages with a header and
    some pages without, such as a title page

Create a table
  • A table organizes information into rows and
    columns. This makes the information easier to
    read and understand.
  • To display a large amount of information in
    columns, a table is easier to organize and edit
    than columns created with tabs.
  • You can create tables in two ways
  • Create a blank table and insert text into it
  • Convert existing text into a table
  • To enter text into a table, move the insertion
    point to the correct cell and begin typing. Word
    will wrap the text to the next line in the same
    cell and increase the height of the cells in the
  • Continue moving the insertion point and entering
    text to complete your table.

Sort the rows in a table
  • You can sort the rows in a table based on the
    contents of one of the columns.
  • Rows can be sorted in ascending or descending
    order based on alphabetical, numerical, or
    chronological criterion.
  • The Sort buttons on the Tables and Borders
    toolbar provide easy access to the sorting
  • While all of the sorting options that are
    available with a spreadsheet or database program
    are not available in a Word table, basic sorting
    functions can be performed.

Modify a table's structure
  • You can modify the structure of a table in
    several ways
  • Rows can be added between existing rows or at the
    beginning or end of a table
  • Columns can be added between existing columns or
    at the beginning or end of a table
  • Individual cells can be deleted, merged, and
  • You can delete the content of a cell or the
    structure of the cell
  • Merging cells removes the border between the
  • Splitting cells creates multiple rows or columns

Insert and delete rows
Format a table
  • There are many ways to improve the visual appeal
    of your table. You can
  • Adjust the size of the rows and columns
  • Change the text alignment
  • Modify the borders
  • Add a shaded background
  • Rotate the text inside a cell

Align cell borders and use borders
  • Adjust the size of the rows and columns in print
    layout view so you can take advantage of the
    vertical and horizontal rulers when you drag the
    borders to new locations.
  • Aligning text in the cells makes the data easier
    to compare or understand.
  • Borders can draw attention to important data or
    enhance the table's appearance.

Align cell data
Add a border below the header row
Use shading and align the table itself
  • Shading highlights important items, such as
    headings or totals.
  • Text can be rotated within a cell, but use this
    feature cautiously.
  • It can make the text difficult to read,
    detracting from your table's appearance and
  • The alignment of the entire table within the
    margins will affect the table's appearance and
  • Aligning the table is done from the Table tab of
    the Table Properties dialog box.
