    Lower case letter to begin sentence (2000/2003)

    I'm working with a company with a non-standard format name. Let's call it xCompany (lower case first letter, upper case second letter). I've managed to get autocorrect NOT to try to correct this to Xcompany - with the exception of when a sentence begins with that name. But having to police each beginning-of-a-sentence occurrence is driving me nuts. Even remembering to run a global search and replace is a pain.

    Is there anything I can do to disable the autocorrect that happens at the beginning of a sentence, JUST for cases in which the sentence begins with xCompany?

    I grovel at the feet of anyone who can help. Thanks in advance,
    -K.

    I'm using Word 2002 SP-3. If I start a sentence with xcompany, Word corrects it to Xcompany, and if I add xCompany as an AutoCorrect entry, it becomes XCompany. But if I start a sentence with xCompany, Word leaves it alone.

    If you use the "Other Corrections" tab of the AutoCorrect Exceptions dialog, does that apply to this situation?

    Not in Word 2000. But it does in Word 2003! Solution: Stop using 2000, or learn to suffer this annoyance with a smile.
