Date Autocomplete

  MIX Spitfire 19:06 17 Apr 2003

Hi I am using Office XP (well someone has to) and I cannot switch off the very annoying autocomplete on date 'feature' so whenever I type in a year if I hit enter Word autocompletes is with an American format date like 2003 4-14-03

I knew how to disable this in Office 2K but any ideas how you it is done in XP? Many thanks, Jonathan.

Insert/AutoText/AutoText and take the tick out of Show AutoComplete suggestions.

This will stop all of them, not just dates.
