Microsoft Word Tip on creating a model

If you created a letter or memo, this standardized document probably includes your company logo, address and a designated area were you only have to change the information for the current communication.

Then, and this is where we all get caught at one point, you have to resave the new document under a different name if you want to save a copy of the communication of course.

Since we are commonly used to click on the save button or press Ctrl+S, you more than likely will end up overwriting the current document loosing its content.

To avoid loosing precious information by overwriting and specially if you consider the document as a model stationary, do the following:

Open the model document (ex: your memo).

Remove all specific information and leave only the outline of the memo.

Select File, click on Save As, then in the file type drop down box, select Document Template.

Name the file, click the Save button, then close the document.

The next time you want to create a letter, select File, New.

Team Work and Organizing your file

If you are working on a network and share files with your team in a shared area where you’ve created multiple folders — This tip is for you.

By default, the Microsoft Office bundle brings you to the My Documents folder, every time you Save or Open a new file.

You can create a shortcut to your team folder right in the My Documents folder for easy double-click access to a shared location.

To create the new shortcut: Launch Windows Explorer (Start, Programs, Windows Explorer). Make sure the C: Drive appears expanded (you can see a minus sign in front of the Drive letter).

Find your Team folder and using your mouse, you will click and drag using the right mouse button. Drag the Team folder on top of the My Documents folder. When the My Documents folder is blue or selected, let go of the right mouse button and select Create Shortcut(s) Here.

The next time you access My Documents, your Team folder will be a double-click away.

Before buying an expensive personal information manager, make sure its compatible with your messaging software.  Sharing Contacts is a must and you don't want to have to re-enter this information to mass mail for example.
