    AutoText (2002 and 2003)

    Hello Word Gurus,

    I have created a template using Word 2002 that contains AutoText entries that I want to be used in Word 2003. However, when the 2002 version of the template is opened in 2003 the AutoText entries are not there. Can anyone let me know where they have gone? Is it that they are not compatible between versions or is there some security feature that disables them?

    I look forward to a response.

    Regards,

    Jocelyn

    The file format for Word 2003 is the same as that for Word 97, 2000 and 2002, so AutoText entries that work in Word 2002 should work in Word 2003 too. Are you absolutely sure that the entries are stored in the template, and not in Normal.dot (the default location for AutoText)?

    Thanks Hansv,

    I have since copied the AutoText entries from the normal template to my template. One would think that if you are working within a template file that any AutoText entries would be automatically saved to the current template! Maybe that is asking too much.

    Thanks for your help again.

    Regards,

    Jocelyn

    To specify where AutoText entries are stored, use Insert | AutoText | AutoText... (or activate the AutoText tab of Tools | AutoCorrect Options...). Select your template in the Look In box (see screenshot)
