Correcting Errors and Revising a Document
After creating a document, you may need to change it. For example, the document may
contain an error, or new circumstances may require you to add text to the document.
Types of Changes Made to Documents
The types of changes made to documents normally fall into one of the three
following categories: additions, deletions, or modii cations.
Additions Additional words, sentences, or paragraphs may be required in a document.
Additions occur when you omit text from a document and want to insert it later. For
example, you may want to add your e-mail address to the l yer.
Deletions Sometimes, text in a document is incorrect or is no longer needed. For
example, you may discover the dog’s collar is just green. In this case, you would delete the
words, and silver, from the l yer.
Modii cations If an error is made in a document or changes take place that affect the
document, you might have to revise a word(s) in the text. For example, the dog may have
been found in Hampton Village instead of Hampton Township.
