How to Make a Booklet on Microsoft Word 2007

Microsoft Office Word 2007, also referred to as Word, is a word processing software application. You can use Word to create documents in any format you want, and you can use templates provided for complex documents. For example, a booklet might contain a title page, a table of contents, a series of chapters with subsections, and an index. You could create a booklet by building each of these elements into a document manually. However, it might be easier to make a booklet in Microsoft Word 2007 using the prebuilt booklet template.
