Creating a New File

Office makes it easy to create many common documents based on a template or by using a wizard. A template opens a document (such as a letter) with predefined formatting and placeholder text that specifies what information you should enter (such as a patient's address). When you start an Office program, a blank document opens based on a default template. The default template defines the page margins, default font, and other settings. A wizard walks you through the steps to create a finished document tailored to your preferences. First the wizard asks you for information, and then, when you click Finish, the wizard creates a completely formatted document based on the options and content you entered. If you can't find the template you want on your computer, you can check the Office Online Web site for more.
