I have recently upgraded from windows 98 and office 2000 to windows 2000 and office XP.
When i try to insert autotext that worked fine previously it is coming up unformatted in a series of squares.
This is only happening on a few machines although i upgraded roughly 60 of them.
Can anybody help please?
Thank You in advance

Insert the bad autotext and change the font to something like Times New Roman. Does that help?

Dreamboat,
Thank you for your reply but unfortunatly this didn't solve the problem.
I forgot to mention that it isn't all of the autotext entries that have become corrupt just most of them
any more ideas PLEASE!!!!!!

Okay. Your autotext entries are saved in the normal.dot file, right?

So, try closing all files in Word XP. OPEN normal.dot. Save it to something like normal1.dot. Close it. Then hit File-New, double-click normal1.dot and see if your autotext works now.

Otherwise, can I see your normal.dot?? [email protected]

I hear people ALL THE TIME having font problems. I never had this problem, and cannot figure it out...would love to finally see something meaningful...
