Some of the advanced features of Microsoft Office Word 2007 offer ways in which you can automate and streamline the way you work. You can use macros in Word 2007 to easily automate repetitive, complex tasks. A macro is a set of instructions that can group a series of actions and keystrokes as a single command. You can also simplify the management of your Word 2007 files by using master documents. Master documents divide large files into related subdocuments through a series of links. This course demonstrates how to create, edit, copy and delete macros through the use of the macro recorder. In addition, aspects of master and subordinate documents are explained, including outline levels, rearranging and restructuring subordinate documents in the master, and converting, deleting, merging, and locking subdocuments. Customization of the Quick Access Toolbar is also explored in this course.
