    • Support_WD19_CS4-7a_Data.png
    • Support_WD19_CS4-7a_Founder.docx
    • Support_WD19_CS4-7a_List.docx

    • If the footer does not display your name, delete the file and download a new copy from the SAM website.
  • As an executive assistant at Hankins Aerospace in San Diego, California, you are drafting an annual report for the members of a management committee to review. The report begins with a personalized cover letter to shareholders.

    Change the margins and orientation of the document as follows:
    • Change the page orientation to Portrait to use the standard format for letters.
    • Change the top and bottom margins to .75″ to allow more space for content.
  • Use the content placeholders as follows to include standard information for a form letter:
    • Delete the COMPANY NAME content control because the letterhead already displays the company name.
    • Use the Date content control with the “CLICK TO SELECT A DATE” placeholder text to display JANUARY 17, 2022 as the date.
  • Apply the Basic (Stylish) style set to use the standard style set for Hankins Aerospace reports.
  • Create custom theme colors and fonts to apply to this report and other Hankins Aerospace reports as follows:
    • Create a customized set of theme colors named Hankins that uses Teal, Accent 4 as the Hyperlink color.
    • Create a customized set of theme fonts named HA Reports that uses Calibri Light as the heading font and Constantia as the body font.
  • Create a new paragraph style as follows to use for the inside address:
    • Create a paragraph style named Inside Address based on the “INSERT INSIDE ADDRESS” paragraph.
    • Change the Spacing After paragraph setting of the Inside Address style to 2 point.
    • Change the font color of the Inside Address style to Black, Text 1, Lighter 35%.
  • Save the new formatting settings as a custom theme, using Hankins as the name, so that you can use the theme with other company documents.
  • At the bottom of the letter, insert a hyperlink as follows:
    • Replace the text “[insert email address]” with the text to insert the company email address.
    • Format the text “” as a hyperlink that links to the email address.
    • Add the ScreenTip Hankins general email address to the hyperlink.
  • To set up the document as a form letter, start the Step-by-Step Mail Merge Wizard, accept Letters as the document type, and then choose to use the current document as the starting document. Choose to create a new recipient list, and then customize the columns in the recipient list as follows:
    • Customize the columns by deleting the Country or Region, Home Phone, Work Phone, and E-mail Address fields.
    • Rename the ZIP Code field using Postal Code as the new field name.
    • Add a new field to the end of the address list using Year as the field name. 
  • Enter the address information for the two recipients as shown in Table 1, and then save the data source using a name of your choice.
