Using AutoCorrect for Faster Data Entry
AutoCorrect helps you in two distinct ways:
It corrects misspelled words as you type.
It replaces an abbreviation you type with more complete text, saving
you time.
To change the way that AutoCorrect works, display the AutoCorrect dialog
box, shown in Figure 1-13, by following these steps:
1. Click the File button (near the top-left corner of the Access window) to
display the File menu.
2. Choose Options.
