Correcting Cell Contents with AutoCorrect

Excel's AutoCorrect feature automatically corrects misspelled words as you type them. AutoCorrect comes with hundreds of text and symbol entries you can edit or remove. Add words and phrases to the AutoCorrect dictionary that you misspell, or add often-typed words and save time by just typing their initials. You could use AutoCorrect to automatically change the initials EPA to Environmental Protection Agency, for example. Use the AutoCorrect Exceptions dialog box to control how Excel handles capital letters.

Add an AutoCorrect Entry

Click the Tools menu, and then click AutoCorrect Options.

On the AutoCorrect tab, type a misspelled word or an abbreviation.

Type the replacement entry.

Click Add.

Repeat steps 2 through 4 for each entry you want to add.

Click OK.
