I use a lot of AutoCorrect items but have difficulty inserting an AutoCorrect item in a locked form field. I reviewed the Microsoft UsersGroup for this issue and was referred to one of their articles that stated if the field length was 'Unlimited' it would not accept an AC entry. It suggested changing the field length to a fixed length and it should work. I created a test document, one field with unlimited length and one fixed and then locked the form.

When I attempted to enter the AC in both fields, neither accepted it and just displayed the AC identifier.

Any suggestions?????
Thanks in advance....
