Default their being replaced with there

The spell checker / grammar checker has an issue where it replaces the word
'their' with 'there'. There are several posts on the net where I have
noticed this and recently found it in business documents that have been
reviewed. The issue is almost transparent to the user until the document is
perused for a second time.

Sounds like the Autocorrect has been set to always substitute the one for
the other. Click on the Office button, Word Options, Proofing. Click
AutoCorrect Options. If it's in there, remove it. This is supposed to be
for things that are always wrong, such as "teh" being "the." The grammar
checker should point out when you've used "their" but probably mean "there"
or vice versa.
