I recall that previous versions of Access were smart enough to capitalize the
first letter of each sentence when adding information to a memo field but
Access 2007 is incapable of this. Is it possible to accomplish this task in
an easy manner. Some of you may suggest using "Autocorrect" but it just don't
work. Try adding text in a memo field and you will see. Type a work and end
with a period. Begin a new sentence and as soon as you press the space bar
the previous word will be capitalized.
Again, any suggestions how to do this?

in MS Word.

I think I have Autocorrect set up right. None of the changes seem to occur

Do you have the option "Replace text as you type" selected? You
need to enter exactly what is shown in the "replace" box.
I hope this helps. Let us know how you get along.

Is the autocorrect options made redundant in XL2007, which was existing

AutoCorrect is language-based (the entries are stored in .acl files by

When I program autocorrect to change aaa to � it only does it when aaa
is typed as a word, not within a word.
Is there a character I can use as a wildcard, or some other way to get
