AutoText Entries missing from menu



Word 2003: From the Tools/AutoCorrect menu, I have a list
of default autotext entries in the AutoText tab. Those
autotext entries should be available through the
Insert/AutoText menu and on the Header and Footer
toolbar. However, they are not there.

My is located in C:/Documents and Settings/All
Users/Templates and made sure that the user templates
(Tools/options/File Location) are pointing there as well.

Can anyone help me?

The AutoText menu on the Header and Footer toolbar shows only the AutoText
entries for the Header/Footer style. If you change the style of the
paragraph to Normal, you will see all the entries. This is true of AutoText
in general: what is displayed is always what is defined for the given style;
if no AutoText entries are defined for the style, then all are shown.

Your style must be either "Header" or "Footer" to have these entries show up
on the toolbar.

I don't even have the autotext entries related to the
header and footer, such as Page X of Y, etc.

Rename to and you should recover the standard
entries. You can then open and use the organizer to copy any
personalisations to the new that Word will create.
