Correct spelling and grammar errors with method of your choice
Create a header

The start-up file for this exercise is in an old Word file format. Word will open this file either in Compatability Mode (Word 2007) or in Protected View (Word 2010, 2013, 2016).
Compatability Mode will not allow newer features of Word that are not supported by the old file format. You can edit in this view. You can save back to the old file format or save to the new file format. The choice depends on who needs to open the file later and what version of Word will be used. Think ahead!
Protected View usually appears because the file was downloaded. It is a protection against malware. Article from Microsoft explaining reasons for Protected View and what it does.
If Protected Mode is on, click the button Enable Editing in the yellow warning bar.
The window changes to Compatibility view.
If Protected Mode is on but you do not see a button Enable Editing in the yellow warning bar, you will have to do some work. You could change a setting but it is easier to create a new document from the old!
You should see a wavy red line underneath some of the words. If you don't, you'll have to turn on the automatic spelling check feature in Word Options.
Word may mark "Evita" and "Sofich" as possible
errors. They are correct. Do not add these names
to the dictionary.
