AutoText is an extremely handy feature enabling Word to "memorize" large blocks of text. Once you've created an AutoText entry, you can insert it in your text by simply beginning to type the name of the entry. As soon as you've typed the first few characters , Word's AutoComplete feature takes over and inserts the entire block of text for you.
One of the advantages of using AutoText is that you only have to proofread the block of text once, before you create the AutoText entry. From then on, each time you insert the entry in a document, you can rest assured that it is error-free.
