Microsoft Word/question about Word 2003


I need to know what a "red herring" is in a financial doc, in Word 2003....and what are the steps to creating one in such a document. I'm going to be taking a test for a job and that was mentioned to me...Thank you.  Mary

A red herring is a type of disclaimer that you would find on registration statements or prospectuses for filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).  The text is formatted in a text box that runs from top to bottom of the page and anchored on the left side.

Good luck on your test.
