  4. Charts, as an illustrated way of showing boring facts and figures, has always helped to embellish professional Word documents. It helps readers compare data and understand trends with a glance, especially useful as supporting arguments to the underlying text that can easily be ignored. 1. Click on the Insert>Chart button. 2. In the opening new window, choose the chart type as you want. 3.

  5. Microsoft Word Skills 5. Manage Page Layout The next Microsoft Word skill is how to set up and preview the page format of any document. Understanding how to do this gives you the flexibility to change a document look as whatever you want, rather than being stuck with the default settings like page margin size. Go to the “Insert” menu, things like the “Page Number” tool, which will automate and manage the page numbering for you. “Page Layout” menu has a bulk of the page formatting options you need. If you’re writing up a newsletter for your company, it will be convenient to use the “Columns” tool instead of mess around with manually trying to work out the formatting into sections of the page. Page margin setting is in the menu of "Page Layout">“Page Borders”, click the “Page Border” tab, and click the “Options” button: You can set top, bottom, left and right page margins there. And in the “Borders" and "Shading” tabs, you will find many other cool things you can do, like place border lines on any side of the page, apply to only sections of the document, and much more. Learning these MS Word and Excel skills, you’ll impress everyone in your office! What other software skills have you found to be key?
  6. Microsoft Word Skills 4. Format & Re-Use Headers When you have a good header design for something like a letter or a certain type of report that you have to fill out, you never have to design or create that header again, you can re-use the header directly. You can save a document with all of the header formatting you need, and save all of that effort the next time you create the same document. Click the Insert>Header button to go to its menu: With these settings, you can see header tool can be versatile and useful. You can automatically have headers alternate between two designs between even and odd pages, and you can even break your document into sections and give each section its own unique header. This flexibility allows you to automate all of the repeat steps for the various documents, help saving lots of time. Another advantage of using headers in this way is that if you ever want to change any part of those headers in the document, all you have to do is make the change to the header style in one place, and the change will automatically applied to all the pages. Without a header tool, you may have to manually make the change on each page one by one.

You do it the same way as last skill. Click and hold the lower right corner of the cell where you just typed in the formula, and then drag it to the right to across the other columns. When you release the mouse, all of those columns will calculate automatically at the bottom cell. You do not need to calculate each column separately, it can save lots of time.
