    Capital Letters in table when I don't want them (XP NL(dutch))

    Good afternoon,

    Can somebody help me with the following:
    In Word I have template with a table containing 2 columns and 9 rows.
    In the 7th and 8th cell from the 2nd column I want to set the standard capitaluse to No capital (2nd option in the menu for capitals).
    I can do that for just once, and than it works, but as soon as I change the word in one of those cells or replace them with a new word the stupid word changes to a word with a capital again and I have to go to the menu again and change it back? How can I prevent this so I only have to set this option once?

    Many thank in advance! <img src=/S/compute.gif border=0 alt=compute width=40 height=20>

    I don't think there is an easy solution for this. "Lower case" can't be specified as part of a style.

    You could turn off "Capitalize first letter of sentences" and "Capitalize first letter of table cells" in the AutoCorrect tab of Tools | AutoCorrect Options..., but this would apply throughout Word, not just to those two cells. It is a personal setting, not a document setting - all users would have to turn off "Capitalize first letter of table cells".

    If your environment permits and your users tolerate, you could turn off the AutoCorrect setting in a macro in that document, or in its associated template (assuming it isn't simply

    AutoCorrect.CorrectTableCells = False

    There are complicated ways to have the setting switch on and off, or remember the user's original setting, depending on the active document, but that probably is way more trouble than it is worth, considering that the effects of AutoCorrect can be countered with an immediate Ctrl+Z (Edit>Undo) after it happens.
