Create A Flow Chart In MSWord

Microsoft Word enables us to make flow charts which will explain the sequential way of analyzing a software program or a procedure. Word 2007 and 2010 have improved this drastically. Just choose the option on the ribbon. 

Steps to Insert a Flow Chart:

1) Click on Insert then click Shapes on the Ribbon to select a shape from the Flowchart Section.

2) Choose the shape and choose an arrow as a connector.

I choose a quick format for the first shapes, drawn the arrow, and am ready to set up more sections.  I just copy and paste the first box and drag it to the appropriate position.

3) We can Add text by right clicking on the box and click on Add Text. 

This is the way we can create a Flow chart with required figures and data in it. This can be done on Microsoft Office 2010 as well


Thanks for the info! I have also found How to Make a Flowchart in Word using lucidchart and it was so easy to use!

Great tutorial, I think Microsoft have a different / separate tool for this use even though word is good for quick use. However there are tools made for the specific use of creating diagrams like flowcharts. Have a look at this flowchart tutorial in Creately.
