AutoText Entry not working.



I have MS Word 2003.

I want to create an autotext entry for (U) with the name unclassified.

When the user starts typing the word unclassified I want it to return with (U)

So when the user starts typing unclas... I should get a autocomplete tip
that appears and when I press enter I will get (U)

I've tried to make an auto text entry for this but it is not working.

I highlighted (U) and pressed ALT F3. When asked to type the name of my
AutoText entry I typed unclassified.

When I start typing unclas... nothing happens I don't get the autocompete

Don't know what I'm doing wrong.

You might find this works better as an AutoCorrect entry (but use a shortcut
that isn't a word).
