Office Binder
Office Binder makes it possible for you to group all your documents, workbooks, and presentations for a project in one place. To get started with Office Binder 97, add a new or existing document to your binder. Use the Office 97 features while you work in a binder. For example, you can ask the Office Assistant a specific question about Office Binder. And you can record binders in the Microsoft Outlook Journal. You can also use any of the following Office Binder features.

  • Print the files that make up a binder with one header and footer.
  • View the entire binder in print preview.
  • Open binders on the Internet or your company's intranet, and save them there if you have the appropriate permission.
  • Use the Go menu or the Web toolbar in Office Binder to open the World Wide Web start page or search page that you set - and to work with binders on the Internet. Use hyperlinks and the Web toolbar in binder sections to move back and forth between binders and other Office files on the Internet, your company's intranet, the network, or your computer hard disk.
  • Set a default working folder to open and save binders.
  • Show or hide the Office Binder status bar.
To create a binder:
  • On the File menu, click New Binder.
  • To create a blank binder, double-click the Blank Binder icon on the General tab.
  • To create a binder based on a binder template, double-click an icon on the Binders tab.
To add an existing document to a binder:
  • from Windows Explorer, My Computer, or the desktop, drag the document into the left pane of the binder window.
To add a new document to a binder:
  • On the Section menu, click Add.
  • To add a blank document to the binder, double-click the icon for the document type you want to add on the General tab.
To add a new document based on a template, click the tab for the type of document you want, and then double-click the template you want the document based on.

Tip: When you start Office Binder, a new, blank binder is created for you.
