Description:

The newest version of Microsoft WORD introduces you to one of the most popular word processing programs in use today. With Word 2007 you can easily create professional-looking documents. Insert graphics, develop styles, and change formats with a click of the mouse. Learn how to build columns, tables, and boxes. Check text for correct spelling, replace misspelled words, and use the thesaurus to find the perfect word. Enhance documents with headers, footers, and footnotes.
