    faxes (office 97)

    I have W2000PE and Word from Office97.
    I am trying to compose a fax in electronic form using Word, and send it from my computer, as I don't have a fax machine.
    The program fax from Accesories only sends coverpage fax files with extension . cov , and editing (pasting) into them other information (like long resumes, for instance), is cumbersome and unfriendly.
    I tried to cut all the fields in the *.cov file and tried to past a long data Word file previously edited data. No luck. All it took was first the page. That utility (cover fax page), is indicated to be from w95!!!
    On the other hand, Word offers several templates and examples to edit a fax in hard copy (not an electronic one, which could be sent via modem ).
    Is it there something I'm missing? Any feature of Word I ignore?
    Could anybody help?
    Thanks in advance

    Normally fax modem utilities include a printer driver. To FAX a document using that is similar to printing it, except that you select the FAX driver as the printer.

    Of course this has to be set up and doing so works differently for each program. Most are pretty self-explanatory.

    Generally, the FAX program will let you type a cover page to go with the document you are faxing.

    Thanks a lot.
    With your tip I immediately found the feature of sending the Word file to the fax.
    The rest was, as you said, self explanatory.
    Best regards,
