Part 4. Managing Word Documents > Using a Wizard to Create a Document

Using a Wizard to Create a Document

Open the File menu and choose New to display the New Document task pane.

In the New Document task pane, under Templates, click On my computer to open the Templates dialog box.

Click the tab that contains the kind of wizard you want to use (your tabs may differ from those shown here), click a wizard to select it, and click the OK button.

Word displays the first screen of the wizard you selected. Click the Next button.

INTRODUCTION

If you'd appreciate a bit more hand-holding than you get with standard templates, try using a wizard. Wizards, like other templates, give you “blueprint” text and formatting, but they also ask you questions about what you want to include in the document, and then create just what you asked for. Wizard-generated documents look exactly like documents based on standard templates, complete with “click here” instructions to help you fill in the text.


The wizard presents its first question. Choose the option you want, and click Next again.

Continue answering the wizard's questions. When you reach the last page, click the Finish button.

In a moment, the document appears. Optionally, fill in the remainder of the text, save it, and close it.
