What Templates Are and How They Work

Templates are patterns for your documents. When you choose a template for your new document, you're telling Word what information—text, formatting, and graphics—you want to appear in that document automatically.

Of course, the more information you can automatically add to your new documents, the less you have to add manually. You can use templates to dramatically reduce the number of documents you create from scratch. Depending on your work, you might virtually eliminate them. Travel often? Create an expense report template. Provide a status report every month? Build a status report template with subheads for every topic you must cover and links to Excel worksheets containing the raw data you're analyzing.
