Word 2000 formatting - linking words together?

  pmjd 14:37 10 Jul 2004

Hi there,
I am currently writting a scientific essay. How can I get Word to link two words together and recognise them as one?
i.e. when I type the name of an organism like "E. coli" how can I get word to recognise that as a single word and not "E." and "coli"?

There is a way to do it but I was told 4 years ago and can't remember. It's more to keep the term together rather than having to do returns to keep it all on one line. Plays havoc with your formatting when you need to do re-writes.

Any help would be great.

Type it in, highlight it and right click, choose add.

It is now in your dictionary as a word.

Type E then CRTL+SHIFT+SPACE then coli.

Not o157 I hope!

Thank you bremner and VoG™ I'll try those out, though VoG™'s suggestion does ring a few bells:)

and VoG™ it's not O157 I'm working with, though I did about 5 years ago, I'm actually working on Candida albicans but thought everyone would know what E coli is.

Incase you want to but don't know Candida albicans causes thrush BUT can also be life threatening to anyone with an impaired immune system.

Most women do know what I mean (and usually take a step back) most men don't know.
