I have a user whose autotext was working just fine yesterday in her
normal.dot file but today it isn't working.. when we go to insert>autotext
all the entries are still there..
But they aren't working..

Any Thoughts
 
 
 

Autotext Disappeared in Word 2003

Can you define "isn't working" a bit further? If you type the name of an
existing entry and press F3, does that insert the entry in place of the
name?

If that works, is the problem only that the little yellow prompts don't
appear? If so, look at the Insert > AutoText > AutoText dialog -- is the box
for "Show AutoComplete" checked? If not, check it -- does that help?
