Default Date Smart Tag/Auto Fill

In previosu versions of Word, when a user entered the beginning of a month,
Smart Tag would come up and prompt for the full spelling, then if the user
hit a space after the month, a tag would primpt for the current date. In
Word 2003 - this is no longer happening. I have checked in all the Tools
Options areas, made sure Smart Tags are on; gone to AutoCorrect options and

made sure Date is on on the Smart Tags tab. Still not working.

As anyone else come across this?

Monica,

It really isn't associated with SmartTags but rather
ToolsAutocorrectAutoText and check the opiton "show autocomplete tip
for autotext and dates"

This feature is sporadic and often gets the month part OK but breaks
down with the day and year. A good option is to create a date stamp
that you can add quickly with a keyboard shortcut. The following macro
stored in your template can be assigned to a keyboard shortcut to
quickly insert the current date.

Sub DateStamp()
'
' Inserts current date

Selection.InsertDateTime DateTimeFormat:="MMMM" & Chr(160) & "d," &
Chr(160) & "yyyy", InsertAsField:=False
End Sub
