Anyone know anything about Microsoft Word 2003? I have been given a case study this week that I need to have turned in by Friday and I was just wondering if maybe someone could take a look at what I have written and maybe give me a few pointers. The assignment is as follows:

Your manager wants you to type, print, and save a letter that he wrote by hand on a napkin during his lunch. When you look at his writing, you notice that he included a bulleted list of important issues. He also added a note saying that at the end of the letter he wants to include page three of a document that is saved on your computer. You know from experience that the letter cannot contain any spelling or grammatical errors. What specific steps would you take to perform the required tasks?

This is what I have come up with so far. Again, I am totally new to the technical side of Word so please ignore my ignorance when it comes to this subject LOL

(CT115) Case Study Week 1

Typing, Printing, and Saving a Letter

Typing a letter

First I would need to open Microsoft Word by clicking START and selecting All Programs. Then I would click on Microsoft Office and select Microsoft Word 2003. This would open a blank document window. I would then type the contents of the letter. Then I would move on to the next step: Creating a bulleted list.

                           Creating a Bulleted List

To create a bulleted list I would select the paragraph(s) I wanted to make the bulleted list of by clicking and holding the mouse button to the left of the first paragraph and dragging it to the last item I wanted to include in the bulleted list. Then on the Formatting toolbar I would click on the Bullets button. On the Format menu I would click Bullets and Numbering to open the Bullets and Numbering dialog box. In this box I would click on the Bulleted tab and select which style of bullet I wanted to use in the list. Then I would click the OK button to close the Bullets and Numbering dialog box. (I have included an example of a bulleted list below.) I would then move on to the next step: Inserting page 3 of a document that is saved on my computer at the end of the letter.

 $10.00 Adult
 $6.00 Child

Inserting page 3 of a Previously Saved Document

To insert page 3 of a document that is saved on my computer I would open said document and scroll down to page 3. I would then select (highlight) the entire contents of page 3 and then right click anywhere on the selected (highlighted) content and then click copy. I would then return to the letter I was writing and press Ctrl+End to move to the end of the document/letter and hit enter to move the insertion point just below the end of the document/letter. I would then right click and select Paste to copy the contents of page 3 of the previously saved document to the end of the letter. I would then move on to the next step: Proofreading and editing the document/letter using the Spelling and Grammar utility.


Checking Spelling and Grammar

To check the spelling and grammar of the document/letter I would click on the Tools menu and select Spelling and Grammar to open the Spelling and Grammar dialog box. I would be prompted to Ignore Once, Ignore All, Add to Dictionary, Change, Change All, or AutoCorrect any errors found in the document/letter. After making any changes necessary a dialog box will appear indicating that the Spelling and Grammar check is complete. I would click OK to close this box. I would then move on to the next step: Printing the document/letter.

Printing the Letter

To print the document/letter I could click the Print button on the Standard toolbar or I could select Print from the File menu. I would then move on to the next step: Saving the Document/letter.

Saving the Letter

To save the document/letter I would select Save As from the File menu to open the Save As dialog box. I would be prompted to select a location to save the file. In this case I am just going to save it in the My Documents folder.
I would then be prompted to give the document/letter a filename and what type of file I wish to save it as. In this case I am going to name the file CT115letterwk1, and I am going to select to save the file as a Word Document type. I would then click the Save button. I would then move on to the next step: Closing the document window and exiting Microsoft Word.

Closing a Document after Saving It

To close the document and exit Microsoft Word I would simply click the red X (close button) in the upper right-hand corner of the Microsoft Word window.


Thanks again for your time and patience.

Sorry I didn't see this earlier...

But I would have told you it looked great to me...

What class is this for?

Thanks Susan, It's for an Applications Software class that I'm required to take (not that I mind, I love learning new things)
