    Deleting Microsoft autocorrect entries (Word 2000)

    Is it possible to edit autocorrect entries within the .acl file? I am wanting to remove all Microsoft default entries and replace it with my own. I have tried opening the acl file in Notepad but it is not an elegant way of editing things, to say the least. I then want to be able to share these autocorrect entries with other users and templates.

    I look forward to your thoughts!

    Regards,

    Jocelyn

    Hi Jocelyn:
    I have a macro that will add multiple autocorrect entries. It may be possible to modify it to delete multiple entries. I also have a macro that will print a list of autocorrect entries. However, I need to ask permission of the authors before I share these. I've already emailed them. I mention this only to let you know that someone is working on your problem, as you haven't gotten a response yet. Of course, one of the VBA experts here might have a quicker solution for you.
    Cheers,

    Hi Jocelyn:
    Ed Weber gave me permission to post his macros & he even redid them, with notes regarding modifications in case they were to be used in Word 97. See the attachment & his instructions.
