Need to force all users to have specific autocorrect settings set up for them in regards to trademark symbols. Is there a way to do this other than one by one? Thanks

just a longshot here,

what are the changes exactly?  are they files, or registry changes, or just flipping some settings??

in the office 2003 resource kit they have provision for this kind of maintenance, something called the "office maintenance wizard". however, its not in the 2000 ORK.

This OMW makes an automated thang that you can push with policy.

 I tried it on a set of office 2000 installation files, and it said that "unexpected results may happen" etc..

Are you using an administrative install point to install office.  if that is the case, you might be able to change your "transforms" file to make the changes for you.. just push it down to the clients..

but,  I'm not sure what you are changing yet..  there might be an easier way..

Office is not installed from a central location. I read something about a certain installer portion of Active Dir that allows for group policy to handle Office settings, but I doubt I have that ability at this point. I think I'm stuck doing them one by one.

Autocorrect for Outlook, Word, Excel, and Powerpoint. Changing certain terms to add the trademark, or registered trademark symbols automatically.

I did a little looking and found this


http://www.microsoft.com/TechNet/prodtechnol/office/office2000/proddocs/field/05usrset.mspx

you import the office administrative templates from the office 2000 resource kit.


open the link, and search for "autocorrect"  I would create a new gpo, and import the appropriate template.

let me know if you need a step by step...

Hi
I would use the policy editor that you use for yourAD domain though and not the NT4 version that they say in the article...
