If you have a over 100 page document which you need to summarize, what is the best way for you to do it?
You could skim through the entire report to pick out the main points or try summarizing them from memory, but that will take awhile. Rather, let Word’s AutoSummarize feature sum it up for you. Follow these steps:
Word will create a summary of the document in another document that you can proofread and edit.
If you find that the summary has missed a few points, try running AutoSummarize again with a larger percentage of the original report. It is always easier to delete from the summary than try to add to it from memory.
