Hi Debby,

I'm not Lynn, but, can tell you where to go to change the paper size.  In
the file menu in Word 2003 down arrow to "page set up".  Hit enter.  If you
hit control+tab here you will be in the paper size dialogue and can proceed
with enlarging if you need to.

I hope that's enough info.  If you need more, just ask.

Mayrie

Hi Lynn!

Thanks for answering my question.

I didn't need to change the paper size this time.  Where would I go if I
need to change the paper size in the future?  I was looking in the wrong
place before.
