    Editing custom dictionary in Word

    I have found how to edit 'custom.dic' and have removed some oddities that had crept in.

    However one problem (that I know of) remains. In MSWord, I type the correct word and when I hit return it changes to an incorrect spelling (that I must have entered by mistake at some point).

    My query is how to correct this autocorrection as it is not in custom.dic.

    Any ideas?

    Word Options, Proofing, AutoCorrect Options, AutoCorrect tab
    and look through the Replace as you type list for the false correction entry.

    Great; all solved. The depth of actions, automated or not, is greater than I had realised.
    Thanks for your quick and helpful response.
