Hi, Connie,

While I am migrating my business work to the Open Source Free 
LibreOffice from  (I think the 
better-supported version of OpenOffice), I do have Word 2010 to help my 
kids with their schoolwork. We also have 2007 someplace, but I forget 
which PC(s) it's installed on.

Anyway, in Word 2010, the old menu from Word 2003 and even before is 
still's just that things are hidden <smile>.

If you hit the Windows logo in the left, you get a whole menu, correct?

Then in that menu should be "options"

Then under the "proofing" selection in the left bar at the top is 
AutoCorrect options. That sub-menu looks to be the same as it has been.

In Word 2010, there is a also on the "Insert" Ribbon something called 
"Quick Parts" that allows you to save to AutoText. You'd have to see 
what that's all about.

I hope this was some help. I think my Word knowledge may have peaked at 
DOS Word 6 and then re-peaked for Word 2003, but I was stuck using 
Office 97 for a very long time at work and never really warmed to it.
