Trivial but irritating Word 97 problem

Sometimes I find Word soooo frustrating!

I want to turn off the auto - capitilisation feature. In other words if the first letter of the first word of a table cell is lowercase Word makes it uppercase when I leave the cell. This is driving me crazy as I want the letter to be lowercase. I can't find anywhere in Tools - Options that will let me turn off this "feature".

Any ideas?

Hi interlion,
I dont know which version of Office you are using, but in Word 2000 you can switch this feature off as follows;
Tools -> AutoCorrect -> From the AutoCorrect Tab you can unselect the feature that irritates you.
Regards, Manfred
