Microsoft Word Templates & Forms

Hours: 2.00 | Estimated Cost: $79.00

Every Word document you create is based on a Template. Templates allow us to predefine what will be included in our Word document. In this session, discover how to create and use your own templates and share them with others. In addition, we will learn to create fillable forms that can be used to gather information via controls such as check boxes and drop-down lists.
