Default New Newsletter

I'm making a new newsletter for the first time and want to have a vertical
"text box" or frame on the left side.

This text would be the staff, etc. that doesn't change from issue to issue.

I make a text box ok but I can't enter text in it and the help is no help in
this instance.

How do you enter text in a text box?

Thanks and perplexed,

Dennis

You type it in, same as any other text.

If that's not working, perhaps you drew a rectangle rather than a textbox?

I went to insert and selected Text Box and a box appeared in my document
with the words "Create your drawing here". I click in the center and a
small box appears. It wouldn't take any typed text.

I'm using Office 2003 on a XP platform.

That's not a text box; that's the drawing canvas. Your text box is in the
drawing canvas. To get a text box without the drawing canvas, disable the
option on the General tab of Tools | Options.
