There is no autocomplete function in Word 2007, like that you describe, 
other than for dates.

But it would of course be possible to create an AutoCorrect entry that 
replaces "Sat" with "Saturday."

"I Saturday down at the table." Hmm. Might want to choose a trigger other 
than "sat." <g>

Well, this should be less of a problem, assuming that the trigger was "Sat" 
with uppercase S (as I suggested).

I do agree that, just in case, one might choose for example "#sat" that 
isn't a real word.
