When AutoCorrect makes a correction that you don t want to keep, you can undo it by issuing an Undo command. (For example, press [Ctrl] - [Z] or click the Undo button.) But if you were typing fast at the time AutoCorrect made the change, you might need to undo a lot of typing (or other editing) before you can undo the AutoCorrect action.
To make corrections easier, Word, PowerPoint, Excel, and Outlook track corrections applied by AutoCorrect. When you hover your mouse pointer over an AutoCorrect correction, the application displays an AutoCorrect Options button that you can click to display a menu of AutoCorrect options. The options vary depending on the AutoCorrect action performed: typical choices are to undo this instance of the correction, to stop auto-capitalizing the first letter of sentences, to stop correcting this AutoCorrect entry (for the future), and to display the AutoCorrect dialog box (Control AutoCorrect Options) so you can adjust other options.
Office 2000 The Office 2000 applications don t support Smart Tags, so they don t let you undo AutoCorrect corrections in this way.
