    Disappearing Word (Word 2000 SP3)

    Does anyone know why, when typing in a protected document, after typing Sam's Cafe, the word "cafe" is deleted? Normally, when you type "cafe" and press the space bar, the accent mark will appear over the letter "e". In a protected document, where you would type the name of the cafe and press enter, the word cafe is deleted.

    I just tested with a Text Form Field, and AutoCorrect seemed to work normally. What kind of field are you (or your user) in when this problem occurs? Or is the insertion point in an unprotected section in an otherwise protected document??

    The whole document is protected and the fields are text fields.

    Hi Jan:
    This was a problem before SR-1a. You could type teh & the autocorrect would make it disappear. However, that was corrected. The "workaround" was to set the formfield lengths to something other than unlimited. Try that with one or two fields to see if it cures it. If so, there's something wrong with the way the service release was applied.

    That did the trick. I will let my boss know that something was not done correctly when SP3 was installed. Can you tell me what may have been incorrect about the installation?

    I don't know. Can you run the SP-1a patch again? If you can, you might have to run SP-3 again also.
