Chapter 19. Word Processing > Saving and Loading Documents

Saving and Loading Documents

One of the main benefits of using a word processor is the ability to save your documents electronically and to retrieve them to use again. In this way, common business documents such as letters, invoices, and contracts can be created once, saved, and then customized as needed. This feature eliminates having to re-create a letter or document every time it is needed.

Saving a document is an electronic way of recording the data on a diskette or on the computer's hard drive. Before you can save a document, you'll be asked to name the document and to designate where you want to save it. Some word processors limit the number of characters that can be used in a name, so many people resort to using codes that can be easily remembered, such as M92604 for "memo written on 9-26-2004." Other word processors will allow longer names.
