    autocorrect in fillin forms

    We have a problem with autocorrect when we are filling in forms that we use. For example: I set up hosp in autocorrect to type hospital. When I type hosp in the fill in field on the form, it doesn't put hospital in the field. Or if I have to correct say has since I spelled it "hsa" the first time it will correct it after that when I press the spacebar it deletes the word. Any help would be appreciated.

    Hi,

    You didn't specify your version or SR- but I don't think it makes adifference, because I have the same in both W97 SR2 and W2000 SR1a.

    The only thing I could find in the knowledge base didn't cover this situation, which I would have assumed to be more common than what they covered.

    My only suggestion would be an autoOpen macro which turned off autocorrect for protected documents- just ensure it's turned back on again on exit.

    That fixes the problem for me in Word 2000.

    Nicely picked up James, I didn't find that one.

    Thanks for the help. I will try what the kb article says. We are using Word 97, but I am not sure what release.
