Default AutoText/Correct

I need to add an autotext or autocorrect to many machines without replaced
their current list or backing up what they have and adding just the one new
entry. any ideas? This is for Word 2003. Thanks.

Default AutoText/Correct

Autotext would be the simpler option. Save it in a blank template and
provide the template as an add-in to the users. Autotexts in add-ins take
precedence over those in the normal template of the same name.

For autocorrect, you would need to provide a macro solution for the users to
add the entry to their systems. Formatted autocorrect entries are stored in
the users' normal templates and unformatted entries are stored in ACL files
under the users' profiles.

You will find a template that will allow you to backup your autocorrect
entries to a document at
http://www.word.mvps.org/FAQs/Custom...utocorrect.htm

Run the backup option on your PC to create a table document containing all
your autocorrect entries - including the one(s) you want to provide. Then
open that document and remove all the rows in the table except the header
row and the row(s) containing the entries you wish to provide. You can then
provide the users with the template and the document and they can use the
template to add the entry to their systems - it will work for both formatted
and unformatted entries.
