  • Keyboarding Objective4.03
  • Apply correct memo formats.

What are Memorandums?
  • A memorandum is a short message from one person
    to another in the same business or organization.
  • Memorandums are usually referred to as memos.
  • Memos have no salutation line and no signature
    area at the end.

Memo Formatting Rules

    Times New Roman/Arial and 12 point font.
  • Single Space within paragraphs and double space
    between paragraphs.
  • All parts of the memo begin at the left margin,
    including paragraphs. (Block Style Format)

Notes to Remember!
  • If someone other than the writer of the memo keys
    the memo, typist initials should be included.
  • Typist initials are keyed in lower case with no
    space and no punctuation.
  • If you have an attachment or enclosure notation,
    double space after typing typist initials and
    type Enclosure or Attachment.
  • Enclosure-Something is included with the memo.
  • Attachment-Supporting document is attached by a
    paper clip, staple, etc.
  • If someone in addition to who the memo is
    originally written will be receiving a copy of
    the memo, include a copy c notation.
