Word 2007 AutoComplete

When I was editing the Document Properties (Home/Prepare/Properties) for the
first time, Word 2007 gives a prompt for the following:

AutoComplete remembers entries in Document Information Panel and Web forms,
like the one you just typed. In the future it can check your previous entries
and list suggestions as you type.
Do you want to turn AutoComplete on?

Word 2007 is already known for not including AutoComplete, or not allowing
the option of turning it on or off. However, it prompted for a yes or no.
So I clicked my choice, and now I don't know how to change it back. If I
clicked Yes, and when I start typing in the Author and Title fields, it lists
a bunch of previously used names in a drop down box. How do I turn this off?
Thanks for any help!

Word 2007 AutoComplete only supports dates.

I believe the kind of AutoComplete that you are describing is a Windows or
Internet Explorer feature. Have you tried turning it off in Control Panel |
Internet Options (Content tab)?

I find it odd that Word would use the IE engine to support simple things such
as the Document Properties window. This fixed the issue. Thanks for the
help.
