Auto correct text changes

I am editing a document in word 2007 that has been saved in compatible mode.  
Whe I try to turn one heading into italics or bold it changes all the 
headings in the document to the same formatiing.

Can any one help me to stop this happening.  If I then press undo all the 
other changes revert back and not the one I have just made.  I can't keep 
pressing undo everytime I make a change.  I just want it to change the words 
I am highlighting

My keying is changed ...
Hi, When I enter text into Outlook 2000 it shows different results. For example, if I enter dog it may show ket. Every character is changed. If I close Outlook and reopen Outlook everything is working fine for a while then it starts up again. Today, a person who sends me email and I send email to has the same problem. Did a virus cause this? If so, how do I get rid of the problem. Also, how did this happen if I have antivirus protection and a firewall? Thank you for your help.

how do I format text as strikethrough in Publisher 2003?
I am copying over text from a WordPerfect document into Microsoft Publisher 2003. Text that has been formatted as "Strikethrough" in the WordPerfect document comes over as plain text with no strikethrough. I have even tried to just import the document which it looks like it does fairly well at, except that all text formatted as strikethrough is imported as plain text. I can possibly believe that Publisher does not have any way to format text in this way, but I have looked everywhere and cannot figure out how to format the text in this way. Can anyone help?

How Do I Record Money Transfer Correctly?
Hi, I just got Money 2004 and run into a small problem: Money seems to be able to download transactions from bank accounts flawlessly, but it does not recognize transfers. Instead, transfers are recorded as withdraws and deposits, and show up in the cash flow report as expenses and incomes. I transferred 5K from a checking account to a broker account this month. Now it tells me that I spent 5K and made 5K. To correct this situation, I tried to change the transaction type to transfer. But when I changed the withdrawal transaction to transfer on one account, a new (transfer) transac...

Auto-Editing
Word 2003 has a very annoying default. It assumes too much! If I reformat a few words in a document, it changes the entire document to that formatting. Grr-rrr-r!

Auto correct or Auto complete
We are all familiar witht he auto correct or auto complete functions found in MS applications. Of course that means it is available in Access also. My question is this ... can this function be replicated within the DB, so that the set of auto correct items are part of the package rather than something that would have to be set up on each individual desktop system? It's use, for me, would primarily be within a memo field where medical abreviations, used as a shortcut, would convert to the true meaning as the user types them in. Ex: "prn" without quotes would change to. &qu...

Auto Scale Chart Macro -- Any improvements please?
This is the best way I've found to correctly scale a chart -- the only way I found to exclude a chart interpolating with #NA cells was to delete those cells containing #NA, and run the chart.

Turning off formatting when tracking changes

I only want to track the changes in the document, not the formatting itself, but it seems as if this is a default and I can NOT get it to go away....I don't want to accept the changes until appropriate folks have reviewed it, but when I send them the document, they all complain about t...

Any way to get rid of an auto-suggestion in the login dialog box, for Exchange/OL using RPC over HTTP?
A client was using RPC over HTTP to two different Exchange servers (OL prompting for profile on startup). Both profiles were set up to prompt for credentials upon connection to Exchange. There's now only one Outlook profile needed; the other is gone and OL isn't prompting for the profile selection any longer, which is fine. However, Outlook is remembering domain1\user and domain2\user in the login dialog box, and I'd love to be able to get rid of the no-longer-valid credential dropdown suggestion.

How to justify text on the left AND right margins of same line?

I'll be grateful for an answer to this! I assume that you are talking about the title of the piece and the composer. If that is correct, you should use an left aligned paragraph with right aligned tab stop at the position where you want the end of the composer's name to be located. Then you would type the title then press the tab key and type the name of the composer. Best to create a ...

NDRs, Outlook contacts, GAL changes

Prior to that, it may or may not have displayed the outside person's organization. Also, some of the listings in the GAL had people's employee numbers as their alias b...
