    Autotext entry freezes word 2002 (Word 2002)

    I have a user who created an autotext entry with the name /stn. Everytime he types /stn to insert the autotext word freezes. Question - are there restricted characters or sets of characters that you should not use with autotext?

    He can replace the /stn with another string (without the /) and it works fine. He has created other autotext entrys with "/"'s for autocompletion and they work fine.

    Any ideas?

    thanks

    Hi angiew,

    I have Word 2002 loaded here at the office and have just tried to duplicate the problem you described, but I am afraid it all worked fine for me. I placed the /stn string in the Autotext and it was replaced time after time with no problems experienced.

    Sorry I couldn't help you any more with this one. <img src=/S/shrug.gif border=0 alt=shrug width=39 height=15>
