    AutoText (Word 2003)

    Some of the AutoText entries that come with Word 2003 work and some don't. Any new AutoText entries I make seem to work just fine.

    What I mean by "don't work" is that I can type even the entire word -- "sincerely" for example -- and no balloon pops up for the Enter key entry.

    Any ideas would be appreciated.

    Craig.

    Some AutoText entries are linked to a specific style. See if "sincerely" works if you select Closing as style.

    Hans:

    Thanks for the prompt reply. I tried using the "Closing" style and "sincerely" still doesn't work; neither does "sincerely yours."

    This is really more of a curiosity than anything else. The AutoTexts I use most often are ones I created and so far they work just fine.

    Thanks, again.
    Craig.

    Re: AutoText (Word 2003)

    The pop-up usually appears only after you have typed enough characters for the autotext entry to be uniquely identified. So atte should pop up ATTENTION: but you won't get anything for special until you add the h (SPECIAL HANDLING) or d (SPECIAL DELIVERY). Sincerely is something of a special case because once you've typed Sincerely and a space, you've completed one entry and are part way into the next and nothing ever seems to pop up. Not sure why they bothered with that one. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>
