    Smart Tags (Word 2002)

    The Smart Tag icon shows up on some computers and not others. Does anyone know what option is determining whether that icon is displayed? Thanks, Jean

    Have you seen Tools | AutoCorrect Options | Smart Tags ?

    And just to confuse things more, have you seen Tools / Options / View? You need to have enabled in both places. Yet another MS feature which leaves us <img src=/S/scratch.gif border=0 alt=scratch width=25 height=29> -- you'd think they'd put everything in one place. Hah!

    Re: Smart Tags (Word 2002)

    Kevin, Thanks for your reply. Actually, I should have been more specific with my question. The smart tag options are turned on in all of the Tools, Options, View/Smart Tags areas. This seems to be more complicated. Our IT Department has installed the same Office XP program on all computers and the only smart tag that isn't showing on my computer is the one that is displayed with a little purple dotted line when you type an address, name, etc. The person sitting directly behind me, who had exactly the same installation, does have that smart tag available to him. We are wondering if it could be associated with Outlook? It's a mystery! Jean

    With the "Addresses" box checked, what happens when you click Recheck Document?

    I believe Smart Tag settings are document specific, so a recheck might be all you need.
