Word ships with a number of built-in 'Templates' - the paint-by-numbers way to
create smart looking documents.  A template is an extremely powerful formatting
tool, and best of all you can create your own.

First, though, let's use of of Word's own templates:

To use a template, you need to select the File/New... menu option.  Note:  Do not
click the 'New' tool, as this defaults to opening a blank page in Normal style.  Use
the menu.

Choose one of the offered tabs, depending on the type of template you want.  If you
choose the 'memo' tab, you will see this:

templates1 

If you wish to use this template as the basis for a document, select DOCUMENT. 
If you wish to edit this template (ie customise it for your own needs) then select
TEMPLATE.  Then click OK.

We're simply going to use it as the basis for a document, which will contain the following
paint-by-numbers section:

  

templates2 

 All you need to do now is to click
where you're asked to do so, and fill
in the relevant information.

You'll notice that the date has been
filled in for you.  All the rest of the
formatting is already in place (eg: fonts,
font sizes, line spacing etc

)
