A memo report is an informal report format often used to reply to a request for information. Memo reports are intended for internal use. Formatting
To begin a memo report, key the heading words and information to print about one inch from the top of the page, as you would for any memo. Use the default side margins for your word processor. Leave one blank line between the heading words and before the first paragraph. Single-space the paragraphs and leave one blank line between paragraphs. Use side headings and paragraph headings as needed in your report to label sections of the report and make it easy to follow. See Unbound Report Example for sample side and paragraph headings. You may wish to use bold print or underlining for headings in a memo report to make them stand out from the rest of the text. References to other works should also be treated as shown in the Unbound Report Example. Multiple Pages

Memo reports often have multiple pages. To identify the pages, key a heading on the second and subsequent pages at the left margin to print one inch from the top of the page. Include the recipient’s name, the page number, and the date. For example: John Smith
