About Creating and Opening Documents and Databases

Microsoft Office helps you save time and makes creating new documents and databases easy by providing wizards and templates. Wizards help you create letters, memos, newsletters, online forms, slide presentations, common business and personal databases that you can use "as is" or customize. Wizards let you choose formatting and content options, while templates come with standard text and formatting.

You can find wizards and templates in the New dialog box (File menu). The Open command (File menu) gives you fast access to the documents and databases you've already created. You can find files even faster by adding shortcuts to them and by specifying the properties, such as the author's name and subject.
