I am having difficulty formatting my Office document (Word, Excel, PowerPoint).

A document’s appearance can affect an audience just as much as its content. It’s common for writers to have trouble getting their Word docs, PowerPoint presentations, and Excel spreadsheets to look the way they want them to look. Fortunately, the University and the internet offer resources that can help writers solve their technical issues.

● Visit the REACH Computer Resource Lab, located on the 1st floor of Ekstrom Library, near the elevators. The Lab’s tutors provide a range of technical assistance, including help with formatting documents in Microsoft Office and using Blackboard. Check out the Lab’s website for more information on the kind of help they provide: http://www.reach.louisville.edu/tutoring/computer
