    Smart Tags (Word 2002)

    My smart tags in Word 2002 have recently stopped popping up. I have checked that they are enabled under Options/view and also under Options/autocorrect/smart tags...but they still don't work. Any ideas?

    Re: Smart Tags (Word 2002)

    Hi Roger:
    With the caveat that I know nothing about Smart Tags, here are some KB articles that may give a clue. One of the articles mentions 3 settings for Smart Tags, not 2 and another talks about registry changes.

    Hope this helps.

    Re: Smart Tags (Word 2002)

    Hmmmm! I seem to have done all the right things except fiddle with the registry which I am little scared to get into. I think some smart tags are working eg the clipboard and paste, but what I am trying to activate without success is the "recognisers" of names, addresses,dates etc between Word and Outlook. I have ticked all the appropriate boxes but no purple dotted lines appear beneath names etc entered in a Word document. Am I ssing the plot somewhere? Is there something else I have to do?

    Hi Roger:
    <img src=/S/bummer.gif border=0 alt=bummer width=15 height=15> I'm afraid that I can't offer anything else, as I've never used Word 2002. If you get no takers here, you might try posting on the Outlook board.
