Thumbs up Answer: how do I set up template to divide page into sections

Sure, I can help you with that! Here's how you can set up a template to divide a page into twenty equal sections that are 1.7 inches squa
  1. Open a new blank document in Microsoft Word.
  2. Click on the "Layout" tab in the ribbon at the top of the screen.
  3. Click on the "Margins" button and select "Custom Margins" from the drop-down menu.
  4. In the "Page Setup" dialog box, set the top, bottom, left, and right margins to 0.5 inches each.
  5. Click on the "Paper" tab in the "Page Setup" dialog box.
  6. Under "Paper Size," select "Custom Size" and set the width to 8.5 inches and the height to 11 inches.
  7. Click on the "OK" button to close the "Page Setup" dialog box.
  8. Click on the "Insert" tab in the ribbon at the top of the screen.
  9. Click on the "Table" button and select "Insert Table" from the drop-down menu.
  10. In the "Insert Table" dialog box, set the number of columns to 5 and the number of rows to 4.
  11. Under "AutoFit Behavior," select "Fixed Column Width."
  12. Set the column width to 1.7 inches and the row height to 1.7 inches.
  13. Click on the "OK" button to insert the table into your document.
  14. You can now type your coin descriptions into each individual square.

That's it! You now have a template that divides your page into twenty equal sections that are 1.7 inches square. You can save this template and use it again in the future by clicking on "File" in the ribbon at the top of the screen, selecting "Save As," and choosing "Word Template" from the "Save as type" drop-down menu.

Use a table, perhaps 5 columns by 11 rows. Reduce the width of columns 2 and
4 so that 1, 3 and 5 can be 1.7. Reduce the height of rows 2, 4, 6, 8 and
10. Then increase that of the odd numbered rows so that you will have them
at 1.7 inches high. This gives you 3x6 = 18 squares.
If you don't mind adjacent rows, you could eliminate the spacer even
numbered rows altogether and use 7 rows, giving you 21 squares.

Thank you, Charles. A coin dealer told me that I could set up a template
that would put 20 ( 4 X 5 ) 1.7 inch squares that I could write descriptions
on. I don't know if I have that ability on Word or not. I might try your
method if I can't find out how to set up the other program.
Thanks again,
Bob

I assume that you are using Letter Size paper (8.5" x 11") Set the top
margin to 1.25", the bottom to 1" and the left and right to 0.85"
Now insert a 4 column by 5 row table and then from the tables menu, select
Table Properties and then the Columns tab and set the column widths to 1.7"
and then go to the rows tab and set the row heights to 1.7" exactly. You
will then have your 20 1.7 inch squares.

Hi, Doug,
I can do everything but set it up for 5 rows. I have a columns table but
not one for the rows. Any suggestions?

The Insert Table button on the Standard toolbar should allow you to drag to
insert the desired number of rows and columns, or you can use Table | Insert
Table and type in the numbers.
