Formatting of headings
How do I create the formatted headings like in the attached document? I am talking about the blue bars with the white letters. Are they in Styles, or Quick Parts, or do I need to create them with text boxes?

The shaded areas seem to be one-cell tables. I say this because they extend into the margin the way Word's tables do. When I've done this, I formatted the cell, including the Heading style in the cell, and then copied and pasted it as needed. I didn't use AutoText much then. Today, particularly on a large document, I'd save the table to AutoText.
By contract the line under "Joe Sales" is probably a paragraph border.

You can do it with heading styles, applying borders and shading, and a small negative left and right indent.

Thanks to both of you for the great help, as usual.
I did it with a table cell as you suggested, that worked fine. And thanks for the info on paragraph borders, I've never used them before.
I ran through creating the same effect using styles, and that works nicely and provides a lot of flexibility. Nice tip on the negative indent.
