Creating a New File
Now that you've learned to open an Office XP program, you need to learn about files. A file is a collection of data, or information. When you open Word, Excel, or PowerPoint 2002, you'll notice that a new blank file conveniently appears, ready for you to begin working.
The more you work with Office XP, the more files you will create.
Creating a new file follows a similar process in most Office XP programs.
