Microsoft Word

INTRODUCTION:

Microsoft Word is a powerful tool to create professional looking documents. Microsoft Word is currently one of the most commonly used applications for creating critical documents such as reports, letters, business plans, and more for the World Wide Web and for print. The newest version of Word extends this tradition by giving users the tools they need to streamline the process of creating, sharing, reviewing, and publishing their important documents. Word makes it easier for users to discover and use existing functionality and provides intelligent new ways for users to work with their documents. Word now also makes it easier for users to share and review documents with others without changing the way they currently work.

A key design goal for Microsoft Word was to empower users to discover and use more of the new and existing functionality in the application. When the functionality is easier to discover and use, users can gain the confidence to try new things and ultimately create more effective reports, business plans, and more. This goal is achieved through new tools such as Task Panes and Smart Tags that are shared throughout the Microsoft Office suite, as well as through improved technology for working with formatting, styles, bullets, tables of contents, and more.

Microsoft Word 2000 gives you the tools to more easily create professional-quality documents and share information-in print, e-mail, and on the Web.


Word 2000 combines streamlined document creation with powerful Web functionality so you can work more efficiently and communicate your ideas more effectively. Advanced integration with the rest of Office 2000 enables you to easily include text, data, and graphics from other Office applications to create high-impact documents.

Word 2000 helps you make the most of your time. With intelligent new formatting features, it's faster and easier to create highly effective print and Web-based documents.

Basics of MS Word

The Application Window

When you open the program, you automatically open a new word processing document. The document window opens up in the Application Window.

The Menu Bar:

You can access all of the commands via the Menu Bar. The menu options are File, Edit, View, Insert, Format, Tools, Table, Window and Help. Some of the uses of these menus are detailed in the following sections.

Tool Bars

Many of the commands in the Menu Bar can more easily be accessed using the toolbars. The toolbars shown are the Standard and Formatting; they contain what Microsoft considers to be the most common commands. These bars can be customized according to the user.

Status Bar

The Status Bar tells you the page, time, date and other useful things such as whether the insert toggle button is pressed.

Your Document

The document is displayed in the large white space in the middle.

Ruler: The ruler (optional) tells you the width of your document as well as the margins and tab stops. To make the ruler appear or disappear, go to the View menu and click on the Ruler option.

Also note that the name of the document and the program you are working in (Microsoft Word) is displayed on the title bar.

The View Menu

The View menu is where you select how you would like to see your document while editing it. There are five different ways to view a document ( four of which have shortcut icons located in the lower left corner of the screen).

NORMAL
-The Normal view is the one most used when creating and editing documents. What you see before you is only the main text, without Headers and Footers (this includes page numbers and footnotes). The layout is simplified so typing and editing can go more quickly.

ONLINE LAYOUT - a new feature in Word - optimizes the layout to make online reading easier. Text appears larger and wraps to fit the window, rather than the way it would actually print. By default, online layout view includes a resizable navigation pane called Document Map that shows the outline view of the document's structure. By clicking an outline topic of the document, you can instantly jump to that part of the document.

PAGE LAYOUT - Page Layout view displays the document exactly how it will be printed. Headers/Footers, Footnotes and Page Numbers are now visible. Page Layout view is good for editing a document that contains a lot of frames, objects, pictures or columns. In Normal view, these items will not be displayed as they are printed.

OUTLINE - The Outline view (far right icon) collapses a document into main headings and text without formatting. A new toolbar appears which allows even more ways of viewing the document. You can display only the document's headings, and change the importance of headings including the text beneath it. In this format, moving a heading will also move subheadings and all text beneath them.

FULL SCREEN - You must access this view from the View Menu; there is no shortcut icon in the lower left corner of the screen. In this view, everything disappears except for your document. Toolbars, menus, scroll bars, title bars, the ruler, and the status bar have all been hidden from view. At the bottom right-hand corner of your screen there appears a Full Screen toolbar with one button. Click the button Close Full Screen to return to your regular screen. If this button does not appear, simply type ALT-V to access the view menu and select your preferred method of viewing the document.

Zoom

Access the Zoom dialof box by going to the View Menu, and clicking Zoom. You can use the Zoom feature to view your document in varying sizes, and preview how your document will look. For a shortcut to the Zoom feature without a preview box, click on the arrow button next to the paragraph button. You will see a list of different Zoom factors. You can also input your own size by clicking on the box and entering a percentage.

FULL SCREEN

In this view, everything disappears except for your document. Toolbars, menus, scroll bars, title bars, the ruler, and the status bar have all been hidden from view. At the bottom right-hand corner of your screen there appears a Full Screen toolbar with one button. Click the button to return to your regular screen. If this button does not appear, simply type ALT-V to access the view menu and select your preferred method of viewing the document.

The Window Menu

One feature of Word is the ability to work with multiple documents. Click once on Window in the Menu Bar. You can choose different ways to display multiple documents you have open at once. Also listed are the names of the files you have open. The filename with a check in front of it is the file you are using currently. Remember, many users mistakenly believe they have lost their file but in actuality it is just underneath.

Application Tools

TOOLBARS -

Toolbars are collections of buttons that give you quick mouse access to certain standard formatting functions. Just click on these buttons once with the mouse to implement the button's feature. The standard Word layout displays the standard toolbar, the formatting toolbar, and sometimes the drawing toolbar. Sometimes the toolbars seem incomplete; buttons may be cut off on the right of your screen. If some of your buttons are missing you can view them by selecting the whole toolbar and moving it somewhere else. Moving a toolbar will rearrange the buttons so all are visible.

Click the left mouse button between any two buttons on a toolbar. When the toolbar is outlined by a dotted line, move this dotted outline to any other location on your screen.

Choosing a Toolbar
To choose a particular toolbar, select Toolbars from the View menu. A dialog box appears with a number of different toolbar options. Select the Toolbar you would like to view and click OK For quicker access to the toolbar dialog box, click on the right mouse button when your pointer is over any toolbar.

Customizing Toolbars

Go to View, Toolbars, Customize Or Go to Tools, Customize This brings up the Customize Dialogue box. There are three tabs: Toolbars, Commands, and Option. Toolbars Tab This Menu enables you to change the pre-existing Toolbars that come with Word. The default Toolbars includes commands that the manufacturer is most frequently. But you may find that your work habits differ slightly.

To customize a toolbar:

Commands Tab Click on the Commands tab Select the Toolbar from the list and click on Customize Drag buttons, to and from the toolbar Click on Close when done Options Tab Large Buttons makes all toolbar buttons about twice the size as they normally are. Click on the Options tab Select the Toolbar from the list and click on Customize Drag buttons, to and from the toolbar Click on Close when done

 

Macros

Creating Simple Word Macros

Put simply, macros automate common tasks. For example, let's say when you print out a particular document, you always have to print 5 copies. You always need to go to the File/Print menu, select 5 copies, and choose OK to print. Wouldn't it be nice if you could just press a keyboard shortcut or choose a button on the toolbar and have Word automatically print 5 copies? That's what macros do. Macros allow you to assign a keyboard shortcut or create a button on the toolbar for tasks you commonly perform and can save you oodles of time. Macros are written in Visual Basic for Applications (VBA), but are easily created in Word with no knowledge of VBA. The code is written for you.

A macro can be created for virtually any task that you perform in Word. The amount of steps is irrelevant. You can even create a macro that automatically places certain text in a document with as many attributes as you'd like! This is great if you need to place things like legal statements or disclaimers in a document.

Macros are created with a recording device similar to a common tape recorder. Once you start recording your macro, a toolbar pops up with standard stop and pause buttons. Let's use our example of creating a macro that automatically prints 5 copies of a document, and make one.

Creating a Macro

Open a blank document or open the document in which you would like to add a macro. You can assign the macro to either be available to all documents, or just the document you currently have open. From the Tools menu, choose Macro and Record New Macro. The Record Macro dialog box is displayed as shown below.

Type a name for your macro as indicated above, and choose where to store your macro. The drop down arrow will allow you to choose a document that you have open to store your macro in, or you can make it available to all documents by storing it in the Normal template.

Add a Description if you would like - this is helpful if you are creating a lot of macros and need to keep everything organized. I usually just make the macro name something I can recognize, and leave the description as the default text.

To assign the macro to a toolbar button, choose Toolbars. To assign the macro to a keyboard shortcut, choose Keyboard. For the example we are using, we are assigning the macro to a keyboard shortcut. That seems to be the preferred choice for most users. The Customize Keyboard dialog box appears as shown below.

On your keyboard, press the shortcut key combination that you would like to use. For example, Alt+P. Note that you are pressing the actual shortcut on your keyboard, not typing out the letters like you see in the graphic below. The combination is automatically placed in the Press new shortcut key box, and Word tells you whether or not that shortcut is already assigned. If the shortcut is already in use, try pressing a different combination. You can use any number of combinations of Ctrl, Shift, and/or Alt with a letter or number. If Alt+P was taken, I might have tried Alt+Shift+P.

Once you have found a shortcut that is not assigned, the Assign button becomes active. Choose Assign and Close. After you choose Close, the recording of your macro immediately begins.

The Stop toolbar is displayed while you are recording, and your mouse has a small cassette icon attached to it. This lets you know that Word is recording every move and click of the mouse you make until you choose the Stop Recording button on the Stop toolbar. You can also choose the Pause Recording button on the Stop toolbar if you need to temporarily stop recording. Choose the Pause Recording button again to continue.

In our example, from the File menu we would now choose Print. We would change the number of copies to 5, then choose OK. You can have any number of steps for the task you are performing, and you can use any of the menus and tools available. Every character you type and/or click of your mouse is recorded. Since our macro is a simple macro for printing 5 copies, we are now done recording.

Choose Stop Recording on the Stop toolbar. The toolbar disappears, and you are finished.

Test your macro by pressing the shortcut key you have chosen. In this example, Alt+P. It should print five copies of the current document.

Deleting a Macro

To delete a macro when it is no longer needed, or to re-record a macro:

From the Tools menu, choose Macro and Macros. In the Macros dialog box, select the macro you want to delete, and choose Delete and Close.

You would go to the same box to edit your macro with the Edit button. However, this opens the Visual Basic Editor and unless you know VBA you may not be able to make the changes you would like. If you need to make changes and are unfamiliar with VBA, it is best just to delete the old one and record a new one.

 

Office 2000 HTML Filter 2.0

The Office HTML Filter is a tool you can use to remove Office-specific markup tags embedded in Office 2000 documents saved as Hypertext Markup Language (HTML). When you create an HTML document in Office 2000, Office-specific markup tags are embedded in it. These tags help "round-trip" the document for editing purposes. For example, if you create the document in Word 2000 and save it as HTML, the code embedded in the document allows you to re-open the document in Word 2000 and use the same features you originally used to create the page.

Once you have completed editing an HTML document in Word 2000 or Excel 2000, you can use the Office HTML Filter to remove the Office-specific markup tags from the final copy of the HTML document. By removing the tags, you reduce the size of the document, which in turn reduces both the amount of space used on Web servers as well as the time it takes to download the page. For additional information about the benefits and disadvantages of removing the Office-specific markup tags, read Use Office HTML Filter to Create Web Pages that Download Faster.

Note The Office HTML Filter can process files saved in any single-byte encoding format. The Office HTML Filter support for multi-byte encodings, however, does not cover the following encodings: Unicode, UnicodeFFFE, and utf-7. Note however that utf-8, which is the Unicode encoding most common on the Web, is supported.

New Features of the Office HTML Filter 2.0

You have more control over which types of markup tags are removed. You can export a cascading style sheet (.css) file based on a Word 2000 document or an Office HTML file. You can copy any fragment of a Word document as HTML and paste it into an HTML or text editor as filtered HTML markup. For example, instead of typing complex HTML tags to create nested tables, create them by using the Draw Table tool in Word. Then select them and click Copy as HTML on the Edit menu to create a compact HTML copy of the tables. The Office HTML Filter 2.0 is even more efficient at removing redundant HTML markup from an Office HTML file.

MS Word's grammar and style check

It's not enough that MS Word has grown into this monster chunk of software, with more features than anyone in one life could ever use. But one of the features you might actually want to use is-well, useless.
I speak of the grammar check. Not even an expert grammarian would make sense of the tedious stream of advice it gives. And often it is dead wrong.

You can, however, render it at least partly useful. Like HAL in "2001," its counter-productive functions can be disabled. The more you can limit the kinds of advice it's programmed to give, the better.

All you have to know is when to say "no." Let SWYM show you how

Finding the control panel.
Open a blank document in Word (version 7.0) and follow these steps: Click on "Tools" at the top Select "Options" Click on the "Grammar" tab Click on "Custom 1" in the window Click on "Customize settings..." In the window that opens there are 2 lists of "rules." One for "grammar," one for "style." The list showing should be the grammar list (the radio button for "grammar" will be set to "on" when the window opens).

To see the style list, click on the "style" radio button. With the "grammar" radio button clicked to "on," you can start customizing the grammar list. Each rule is turned off or on by checking or unchecking the box in front of it.

File Conversion

Word 97 comes with built-in document converters, so WordPerfect 5.x documents should be automatically converted when you open them in MS Word.
However, some files may need to be massaged a bit! If you don't see your files from MS Word's File Open Dialogue box, this is because Word is very self-centered, and presumes that you only want to open files that it thinks were created in Word, that is, that have a .doc extension.
If your filename extensions are not visible, change your View defaults in Windows Explorer so that file extensions are not hidden.
To see a listing of files with other extensions, you will need to go to the Files of type: box at the bottom of the Open Dialogue box Click on the triangle on the right to bring up drop-down menu Click on All Files to select it Open your file
Once you have opened your Word Perfect document in MS Word, be sure to change the filetype to Word if you know you will continue to work in Word. This will ensure that your formatting is maintained.

Converting Mail Merge Documents

Word data source documents can be either tab or comma delimited or in table format to convert to WordPerfect. Word automatically converts WordPerfect secondary files to Word data source document format. Conditional print merge constructs and macros are lost when converting to Word.

Formatting Tables

Designing Tables

Using Word 2000 Word 2002 found in Office XP provides the best support for designing tables. But if you're a current user of Word 2000, never fear, we've got some table design tips for you.

Creating Simple and Complex Tables In Word 2000

you can still create a simple table by clicking the Insert Table button on the Standard toolbar and dragging to select the number of rows and columns you want. But for creating more complicated tables, such as tables containing cells of different heights or a varying number of columns per row, Word 2000 provides an enhanced Draw Tool. Using this simple feature, you can click and drag to draw table boundaries and cell partitions in any height and width you want. You can even draw tables one cell at a time.

To create a table with the Draw Tool: Click any spot in the open document where you want to create a table.
On the Tables and Borders toolbar, click Draw Table. Your pointer changes to a pencil. To define the table boundaries, draw a rectangle.
To define the table's columns and rows, draw vertical and horizontal lines insider the rectangle.
You can also draw diagonal lines through table cells. When you have finished creating the table, click in a cell to enter text or insert a graphic.

Now Creating a nested table

You can also use the Draw Tool in Word 2000 to create nested tables-tables within other tables. Nested tables are especially useful if you use one table to format a Web page and you want to insert another table inside it that will contain information. Just select the Draw Tool, position the pencil-pointer in the specific cell where you want to place the nested table, and then draw the new table as you would any other.

Merging cells and erasing borders

Word 2000 also includes an improved Erase Tool that allows you to remove partitions between rows or columns, and merge two or more cells together. For example, you could use this tool to create a table heading that spans several columns. Simply select the Erase Tool to perform any of the following actions.

Hide borders:
Drag the eraser over a table's border lines to hide them from view

Merge cells: Drag the eraser over cell borders to consolidate adjacent cells

Delete a table: Beginning outside a table, drag the eraser over the entire table to erase it completely You can also quickly merge multiple cells by selecting them and clicking the Merge Cells button on the Tables and Borders toolbar.

Manipulating Table Placement and Size

Moving a table In Word 2000
you can grab and move your table to another place on a page with just one motion. Simply hover your pointer over the table until the Table Move Handle appears on the table's upper-left corner. Move your pointer to rest on the handle. When a four-headed arrow appears, drag the table to its new location.

Resizing a table

The Table Resize Handle appears on a table's lower-right corner when you initially rest your pointer on that corner. You can use this handle to change the size of the table while maintaining row and column proportions. Rest your pointer on the handle until a double-headed arrow appears and then drag the table boundary until the table is the size you want.
You can move and resize your table in Word 2000 using these two convenient handles. When working on a Web page in Word (in Normal or Web layout view), you can also set the table to resize automatically so that it will fit in a window when you change the window size. To do this, click anywhere within the table; click AutoFit on the Table menu, and then click AutoFit to Window.

Resizing parts of a table

You can easily adjust row or column height by dragging the border of the row or column up or down. To display column or row measurements, press ALT as you drag the border.

Aligning a table on a page With Word 2000

you can now quickly align a table on your page using buttons previously reserved for text alignments. Just select the table you want to align and click the Align Left, Center, or Align Right button on the Formatting toolbar.

Working with Tables and Text Word 2000 also includes many new features that make working with text-both inside and outside tables-much easier.

Wrapping text around a table If you want to create floating tables-tables with text wrapped around them-you no longer need to use text boxes or frames, which were necessary in previous versions of Word.

To wrap text around an existing table:

Select the table. On the Table menu, select Table Properties.

Click the Table tab. Under Text Wrapping, click Around. Note: To automatically apply text wrapping to a table as you draw it, press CTRL while you use the Draw Table tool.

Word 2000 includes the improved Tables and Borders toolbar. Hover your pointer over any toolbar button to discover its function.

Aligning text inside a table With Word 2000

you can orient the text in your tables to flow vertically (rotated 90 degrees) as well as horizontally. This feature is helpful in creating labels, photo credits, and copyright statements. Just select the cells for which you want vertical text and click the Change Text Direction button on the Tables and Borders toolbar.

You can then quickly change the vertical or horizontal alignment of text in a table cell using the alignment buttons on the Tables and Borders toolbar, such as Align Top Left or Align Bottom Center. If your text is oriented vertically, alignment buttons adjust automatically to provide the correct alignment options.

Formatting Table Borders

Word 2000 provides additional border formatting options to help you create "Web-style" tables, whether your document is for print or electronic publication. To access these border styles, click Borders and Shading on the Format menu and select one of the new 3-D line styles from the dialog box. You can also apply the styles by using the Tables and Borders toolbar buttons or the Table AutoFormat command on the Table menu.

Laying Out Graphics in Tables

With Word 2000 you can now format images using one method, whether your graphic appears inside or outside a table cell. For example, to wrap text around a picture or drawing object in a table cell, simply select the graphic, and then choose the appropriate picture item from the Format menu (for example, AutoShape, Picture, and so forth). In the Format dialog box, click the Layout tab. Then select the wrapping style you want to apply to the image. Text inside the table cell will fall around the image according to the formatting you select.

Conclusion

Microsoft Word is currently one of the most commonly used applications for creating critical documents such as reports, letters, business plans, and more for the World Wide Web and for print. The newest version of Word extends this tradition by giving users the tools they need to streamline the process of creating, sharing, reviewing, and publishing their important documents. Word version 2002 makes it easier for users to discover and use existing functionality and provides intelligent new ways for users to work with their documents. Word now also makes it easier for users to share and review documents with others without changing the way they currently work.

Now that you've gotten free know-how on this topic, try to grow your skills even faster with online video training. Then finally, put these skills to the test and make a name for yourself by offering these skills to others by becoming a freelancer. There are literally 2000+ new projects that are posted every single freakin' day, no lie!

Please excuse me if this doesn't work. But as far as I know, the CTRL+TAB works withing the files open in the same program, and ALT+TAB works for switching between files open on seperate programs. You might want to try various methods to get it to work.
