How to Make a Booklet on Microsoft Word 2007

By Sam N. Austin

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.

Step 1

Click Start > Programs > Microsoft Office > Microsoft Office Word 2007. This opens Word.

Step 2

Click the "Microsoft Office" button, then click "New" in the popup menu. This opens a New Document dialog box.

Step 3

Click the "Microsoft Office Online" icon in the left navigation bar of the Open dialog box. This opens a display of templates available from the Microsoft website.

Step 4

Type "booklet" in the search box at the top of the templates display, then click the arrow key. This generates a list of booklet templates.

Step 5

Click to highlight the booklet template you want, then click the "Download" button. This opens and downloads the template and opens it automatically in Word.

Step 6

Change the title, chapters, subheads and other items in the template to customize the template for your particular use.
