    AutoCorrect and R (XP)

    We are finally rolling out Office XP and Windows XP. I'm trying to determine if a particular AutoCorrect entry came with Office XP or someone inadvertently set it on our corporate image. <img src=/S/scratch.gif border=0 alt=scratch width=25 height=29> The entry in question is the letter <font color=red> r </font color=red> . Any time you type a solitary <font color=red>r</font color=red> (followed by a space or Enter), it changes to the word <font color=red> always </font color=red> (r = always). (Yep, it's always always! <img src=/S/evilgrin.gif border=0 alt=evilgrin width=15 height=15> ) I'm wondering if anyone knows whether or not this entry (r for always) is commonly used? Any ideas? I'd hate to remove the entry on the corporate image if it's a useful substitution.

    I didn't see anything in our medical dictionaries that might have added this entry. Obviously, it's easy enough to delete the AutoCorrect entry (we only have several hundred PCs imaged thus far - what's one little fix?!)

    Thanks for your information.

    Re: AutoCorrect and R (XP)

    I do NOT get any AutoCorrect action when I type in "r(sp)" , except when it is the first character in the sentence, then it changes to upper case.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    Dave, Thanks for the quick response! I had a feeling the r = always was NOT a set from Microsoft.
