In Microsoft Word 2002 I no longer have autotext entries. Autocorrect is still there but no autotext. Header and footer toolbar aslo has a greyed ou auto text. I can ( for eg ) insert a form field to put in the file name etc but no autotext.

Hope someone can help. I have uninstalled and reinstalled Word - no different.

Thanks for trying MCE2K5
However the Knowledge article explains how to prevent this happening but not how to repair it. Article says it happens when you create a new template from normal.dot.

No explanation as to how I get a fresh complete version of normal.dot. I have uninstalled and reinstalled Word XP - no effect.

Search for normal.dot (you may need to enable searching for hidden files and folders). Rename it to normal.old. Start Word and it will create a new normal.dot.
