Autocomplete of Date in Word 2007

Does anyone know how to remove the auto-complete of the date when using Word 2007. I've tried with earlier versions of Word but found that all I could do was to turn off auto-complete altogether. It's so irritating when I forget use the space-bar after the date and pressing Enter/Return auto-fills in American style.

Thanks gengiscant & Marko797. I don't want to turn off Autocomplete altogether, I just want to defeat this date thing so I'll have a look at the ribbon again

I do not think taht it is a problem with turning off autocomplete. - The problem is that after you enter the date in your text and then press enter without a space immediately after the entered date you get a repeat of the date in abbrevioated form. I have not come across an answer to this - I merely press the space bar as you do.
