The City Soccer Team is having a sign-up event at City Hall. You will create an announcement flyer for this event. This exercise will use most of the techniques that you used in creating the flyer for World Travel Inc. in Word Project 1.

Line numbers are for the current lines. As you make changes, the wrapping changes what line the text falls on.

TipUse the Status bar to see what line you are on.

These exercises use files from the word resource files which you downloaded. The default location for these files is c:\My Documents\complit101\words\ You cannot make changes to these files and save them in the same place. Save the changed documents to your Class disk. This keeps the original resource files intact in case you need to start over or another student will be using this same computer.

In future lessons you will see the same fictional organizations and people that you meet in these exercises: The City Theater, the City Soccer Team, and Computers Today. For exercise 4 you get to suit yourself.
