Autocorrect and Normal.dot

I use AutoCorrect (AC) to save word strings as a few letters, as many of you do. Sometimes between typing one chart and the next they just stop working. Sometimes it works to reopen Word, sometimes I need to use the AutoCorrect.dot utility to restore them. Well, the day that works came and went.

Right now shorts only work if I delete Normal.dot. So when Word is closed I delete Normal, open Word (MY ACentries then work) I do my typing, and close Word. Since there was no Normal.dot, Word now makes one. When I reopen Word AC does not have MY entries anymore.

They tell me that AC entries are stored in a .ACL file. I cannot find any .acl files on my PC but I am using Vista so I and not surprised.

Any suggestionsÉ

Thanks much
FarmerM
