    The settings from the Save tab of Tools | Options are stored in the notorious Settings value under the Data key. It is virtually impossible to interptret this binary value.

    If your somewhat cryptic question meant something else, could you please clarify?

    Thanks Hans.

    I wanted to know if there was a reg key that you could edit that could turn on/off Words autorecovery. Or anything related to autorecover.

    cheers diana

    No, as I mentioned, most of the AutoRecovery settings are stored in a binary value that is almost impossible to edit. The only recognizable setting is AUTOSAVE-PATH in HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftOffice10.0WordOp tions.

    Perhaps one of the templates in the Office XP Resource Kit will show a key under the Policy path that will do this?? To investigate further, see: Microsoft Office Online: Office XP Resource Kit Home Page.

    However, such keys are designed for centralized control and might prevent user customization, so if the idea was to toggle this setting in a macro solution, it might not be the best approach.
