Add Words to AutoCorrect Entries

AutoCorrect feature is used to correct typos and misspelled words (dont to don’t), as well as to insert symbols ((c) as ©) and other pieces of text. AutoCorrect is set up by default with a list of typical misspellings and symbols. If you want to add more entries, you can do that by following

Office Button - -> Word Options - -> Proofing Tab - - >Autocorrect Options




Add the mistyped word and the replacement in Replace Box -- >Add







Barak Obama is the democratic presidential candidate will become Barack Obama is the democratic presidential candidate once you type.

The same can be achieved through Word VBA / Excel VBA

Excel VBA Code:

Sub Add_AutoCorrect_Entry_XL()

On Error GoTo Err_Label

' ---------------------------------------------

' Coded by Shasur for www.vbadud.blogspot.com

' ---------------------------------------------

Application.AutoCorrect.AddReplacement "VBADUD Plc", "VBADUD Inc"

Application.AutoCorrect.AddReplacement "Barak Obama", "Barack Obama"

Err_Label:

If Err <> 0 Then

MsgBox(Err.Description)

Err.Clear

End If

End Sub

Word VBA Code:

Sub Add_AutoCorrect_Entry()

On Error GoTo Err_Label

' ---------------------------------------------

' Coded by Shasur for www.vbadud.blogspot.com

' ---------------------------------------------

Application.AutoCorrect.Entries.Add "VBADUD Plc", "VBADUD Inc"

Application.AutoCorrect.Entries.Add "Barak Obama", "Barack Obama"

Err_Label:

If Err <> 0 Then

MsgBox(Err.Description)

Err.Clear

End If

End Sub

  1. Hi Shasur,

    Great stuff here thanks a mill for the info. I was wondering if you could help me. I want to write a similar code but using images as the autocorrection. If the word typed is at the beginning of a sentance =pdf 'a'. If it's not at the beginning = pdf 'b'.

    What would I need to read up on to write this kind of code. I'm totally new to VBA.
