Past/present in Office

Does office XP have a function that changes the tense of the written text,
i.e. Make past tense into common tense etc?

Not that I can see but if you go into tools, options and look through you might find something I may have missed.

You are asking it to do something very complicated. There are words that affect how the ones either side of them are spelt when the tense changes.

There is nothing to stop you writing a find/replace makro for every word you are every likely to use. Somehow I doubt it would be worthwhile!

How long before Office writes it all for you?
