Word Designing Forms/Mail Merge



This course provides these key users with the skills to create sophisticated form templates that can be used by other people in a team, department or organisation and use the Word mail merge facility efficiently.

In order to produce consistent-looking documents within an organisation, Word offers the facility to create document “stencils” through user and workgroup templates; for individuals and groups of people respectively. It is essential that certain key Word users in the organisation are, therefore, responsible for creating and maintaining these templates.

The crux of creating templates for others to use is ensuring they are stored in the correct location for other users to access. Creating and modifying both paragraph and character styles, is essential to maintaining a consistent appearance.
