    Don't know where to look for help/ When a lower case x is typed in a word such as example the result is e069ample. Is the 069 an error code or is it a substitution (like a bookmark) that has been defined for x?

    I use Windows Vista and Word 2007. Any ideas appreciated. Word HELP was not helpful!!

    Hi Rbuck,
    Check your AutoCorrect options. Click the Office button and then go to Word Options/Proofing. Click the AutoCorrect button and you should see a list of replacement text. Check and see if somehow the x is being replaced by 069.
