Reining in Word's AutoCorrect options

Question : How can I stop Microsoft Word from changing my text ?

Answer : This topic never goes away. Even the Microsoft Office 2007 -- otherwise a big improvement over earlier versions -- is as bossy as ever when you write in Word.

You can regulate this behavior, but the way to do so depends on the version of word you run.

In Word 2003 and most older releases, go to the Tools menu and select "AutoCorrect Options."

In Word 2007, click the round Office button at the top-left corner, click the "Word Options" button, select the Proofing category and click the "AutoCorrect Options" button.

Under the AutoCorrect Options window's "AutoCorrect"Tab, click the check-boxes next to such commands as "Correct TWo INitial CApitals" and "Capitalise First Letter of sentences" to stop Word from making these fixes on its own.

Select the AutoFormat as You Type table to control how Word makes formatting changes, such as inserting bullet symbols in a list or turning typed fractions into symbols (1/2 into = ).
