Getting started with a basic document in Microsoft Office Word is as easy as opening a new or existing document and starting to type. Whether you start a document from scratch or rework an existing document, you can follow a few basic steps to ensure high-quality results and you can quickly complete a professional, well-designed document . Key elements of a complex document include headers and footers, page numbers, citations, equations, a bibliography, a table of contents, and an index. You can also use any of these elements to create a document template that you can use again and again. You can find out more about all of these additional document elements by typing any of these terms into the Search box while you are using Word. Tip: If you want to create a specific type of document, such as a business plan or a resumé, you can save time by starting with a template. The Templates on Microsoft Office Online web site provides templates for many types of documents, including resumés, cover letters, business plans, business cards, and APA-style papers.
