How do I turn on the "AutoComplete" command in Word 2007

I am attempting to try and turn on the AutoComplete command that Word 2003
had and I cannot locate it in 2007. When you type the start of the date
(e.g. February) then the Autocomplete will finish the rest of it. This
feature works on some of the computers in our lab, but not on others. How do
we turn it on and off?

Hi educatorinneed

It has been discontinued in 2007. Type the unique characters of any
autotext, eg: abc Press F3 and the autotext will play and you can use
Autocorrect as well.

The AutoComplete tip for AutoText was removed in Word 2007 but it will still
work for dates. However, the option isn't available in the interface and you
need to use VBA to turn it on/off:

- Press Alt+F11 to open the VBA Editor
- Press Ctrl+G to open an Immediate window
- Copy paste the following in the Immediate window:

Application.DisplayAutoCompleteTips=True

- Place your insertion point on the pasted line and press Enter
