    In both Word 2003 and 2007 you can begin to type something like "Dec" and it will "ask you" if you want "December" and you can hit enter and it will add it. In Word 2003, I can type a word or phrase, go to "new auto text" and give it a name (usually smaller than the actual word) and then it will do the same thing (ie: "Ent" will trigger it to ask if I want "Enterprises" and then I can hit enter to insert). Though I can create an "autotext" OPTION in 2007 that allows me to go through an autotext menu and CHOOSE to insert my special word (ie: Enterprises), I cannot find a way to get it to do the trigger to enter it for me. Has this feature been taken out of 2007 or am I just missing it?

    Thanks for helping!
