    Typo not picked up by spellchecker (Office 2000)

    I sometimes mis-type "has" as "ahs". When I spellcheck in Word or Outlook, this is not picked up. I have checked my custom dictionary, and it is not in there.

    Does anyone have any suggestions?

    Many thanks,

    ahs is the plural of ah, so it is spelled correctly. Since you will probably never use it, you can add an autucorrect entry to automatically change ahs to has.

    Select Tools, AutoCorrect. In the Replace box, type ahs. In the With box, type has. That should take care of it.
