Today's Class

Spent the first hour on some Word 2003/2007 basics. You can pickup the notes on the Class Notes page link above or click here:

There were a number of great questions during the second hour. One was about how to let Word generate a Table of Contents for a long paper or book.

Another was on how to create an Index at the end of a document for key words. I did not remember how to do that, except that you needed to tag the words you want included. I Google it when I got home and here is a link to an article on how to do it:

Most of the group had Windows 7 and a smaller number had XP. There was a similar mix of Word 2003 and Word 2007. Some were using Open Office, the free office suite of programs. I showed how to access and use Google Docs, which is the free suite in the cloud. Totally online, you do not need to install it on your computer and the documents you create are save in the cloud on the Google servers. I use this app more than I do Word.

Next week we will do some more Word stuff like templates and mail merge. The week after that we will talk about social networking and Facebook.
