    Overriding AutoCorrect?

    Is there a way to override the AutoCorrect function. For example, I am preparing a document and I wish to refer to section (C) of another document. Every time I type "(C)", Word replaces it with a copyright symbol - . I want to know if there is a way to override this. Any insight that anyone would care to provide will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    In Word 2010, select File | Options | Proofing, then click the AutoCorrect Options... button. Select and delete the entry in the table that says Replace (c) with .

    If you're using a different version of Word, you do the same thing, but you get to the option via a different route (something like Tools | AutoCorrect ...).

    Hope this helps.

    If you want to keep the (C) to in the autocorrect list, you can press Ctrl+z immediately after the autocorrection is formed to undo it.
