Creating a Business Letter
To Create a New File from an Existing File
The top of the business letter in this chapter contains the letterhead, which you saved in a separate i le. You
could open the letterhead i le and then save it with a new name, so that the letterhead i le remains intact for future
use. A more efi cient technique is to create a new i le from the letterhead i le. Doing this enables you to save the
document the i rst time using the Save button on the Quick Access Toolbar instead of requiring you to use the Save
As command in the Backstage view. The following steps create a new i le from an existing i le.
