Re: Autotext 97 replace lost item (97)
If (a) you have stored your autotext items in Normal.dot (which is where they are stored by default), and ([img]/forums/images/smilies/cool.gif[/img] you have not quit Word since you deleted the autotext item, then you may be able to get it back by doing the following:
With a document (any document) open, go to Tools > Options > Save tab. Make sure there is a checkmark next to "Prompt to save Normal template".
Close that document (and any other documents) and quit Word.
You should then get a prompt telling you that changes have been made to the global template (Normal), and asking if you want to save changes.
Click on "No".
Then restart Word - your Normal.dot (and the autotext entries it holds) should be back to the state they were in the last time you started Word.
