Default Dates in WORD 2007

Hi
I am running Windows XP and have just installed WORD 2007. Can someone
please tell me how I stop the parser auto-completing dates for me?

I like to write 29th May, 2010 - but as soon as I type that and hit ENTER
I get 2010-05-29 on the end.

It's driving me nuts!!

Default Dates in WORD 2007

I have looked in:-

Office Button (top left hand corner)

Word Options (lower right hand corner)

Proofing (on the left hand side) then, on the right hand side, click on
AutoCorrect Options . . .

- but could see nothing in there that could be turned off.

However a quick and easy solution to your problem would be to place a space
character after the last digit of the 2010 that you mention.

If you do this your problem goes away.

If my comments have helped please hit Yes.

Thanks.

Autocomplete in 2007 only applies to dates and is switched on by default. To
turn it off press ALT+F11 to open the vba editor. Press CTRL+G to open the
immediate window and in that window type

Application.DisplayAutoCompleteTips = False

and press enter. Close the vba editor (File Close and return to Microsoft
Word)
