Word.Tips.net: Formatting a Cover Page

By Allen Wyatt for Word.Tips.Net

Formatting a Cover Page in Microsoft Word

If you are writing a report, you will probably want to create a cover page. In some word processors, this would be done as a separate file. You can also use this approach in Word, but you can also format a cover page as part of the document containing the report. This is done by making the cover page one section and the rest of the report another section. To do this, follow these steps:

1. At the beginning of your document, enter the information you want for your cover page. Don’t worry about formatting yet; just enter the text.

2. Position the insertion point at the beginning of the report, but after the cover page information.

3.In the Page Layout tab of the ribbon, click on the Breaks drop down list control. Word displays a list of break types.
