When you add an entry to the AutoCorrect list in your Microsoft program, the entry may no longer appear in the list when you close and then restart the program.
This problem occurs when you close the program if the program cannot save the change to your AutoCorrect file (.acl). For example, if your AutoCorrect file is marked as read-only, or if your computer's hard disk is full, any changes that you make to your AutoCorrect list cannot be saved to the AutoCorrect file.
Note that you do not receive an error message or any indication that there is a problem saving the change to the AutoCorrect file. The only indication that the change is not saved is that the next time you type the entry in your program, the entry is not replaced with the text that you expect, and the entry does not appear in the AutoCorrect list the next time you use the AutoCorrect feature.
To resolve this problem, use either of the following methods.
Method 1: Check the Read-only attributeMake sure that your AutoCorrect file is not marked as read-only by doing the following:
Method 2: Check your disk space
Check to make sure that you have enough disk space available on the drive to which you installed Microsoft Windows. If you are running low on disk space, delete any files and folders that you are not using and empty the Recycle Bin to create more available disk space.
Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in the Microsoft products listed at the beginning of this article. We are researching this problem and will post new information here in the Microsoft Knowledge Base as it becomes available.
