The AutoCorrect dialog box includes a variety of options that control automatic substitutions which are divided in two tabs: The AutoCorrect tab and the AutoFormat as You Type tab.
Setting AutoCorrect Options
You can use the AutoCorrect feature to correct typos and misspelled words, as well as to insert symbols and other pieces of text. AutoCorrect is set up by default with a list of typical misspellings and symbols, but you can modify the list that AutoCorrect uses.
