    Autocorrect in Access 2000 runtime (Access 2000)

    I have an Access 2000 database, forms etc on desktop, tables on server.
    On some PC's full Access has NOT been installed, instead runtime has been installed using the MOD. These PC's do not have any other Office 2000 products installed (but do have Word, Excel & P'Point 97).

    When typing in a text box, autocorrect kicks in and changes things like SEH to SHE. I would like to turn autocorrect off for Access, but can't get to the menu options to do so as it's in runtime mode.

    I tried removing entries from autocorrect in Word 97, but it didn't work.

    Any thoughts on how to turn autocorrect off

    In the text box set the Allow Autocorrect property to false.
    You need to do this for each control - I don't think you can do this globally for Access.

    Thanks for that. I was looking for the whole database solution, but doing it for each field works even better.
