To add a common abbreviation to the AutoCorrect list, display the
AutoCorrect dialog box (repeat steps 1–4 of the preceding list) and then
follow these steps:
1. Enter the abbreviation in the Replace box.

You can delete an AutoCorrect entry by selecting it in the list and then

By default, all the options in the AutoCorrect dialog box are enabled
(selected). You may want to disable (deselect) some or all of them if Access
is making corrections that you don’t want it to make.
The Exceptions button displays the AutoCorrect Exceptions dialog box
(shown in Figure 1-14), where you can tell Access not to capitalize after a
period that ends an abbreviation (on the First Letter tab) or to leave two or
more initial caps the way you enter them (on the INitial CAps tab).
