eSource: MS Word: AutoCorrect Tool

Handy tip or trick

The AutoCorrect feature in MS Word automatically corrects many common typing and spelling errors, and can also insert text automatically for you.

Access AutoCorrect by selecting the File>Options>Proofing>AutoCorrect Options. Use this feature to add commonly misspelled words and entering commonly used phrases. For example, if you often type College of Agricultural, Consumer & Environmental Sciences, enter a shortcut (such as ACES) to the Replace field and College of Agricultural, Consumer & Environmental Sciences in the With field. Every time you type ACES it will be replaced with the non-abbreviated title.

Make sure Replace text as you type is selected.
