I have a user running Windows Vista Ultimate with Microsoft Office 2007 installed.

When he insert an attachment in Outlook 2007, autocomplete do not work when he keys in partial filename.

The autocomplete function works under Windows Explorer though.

Is there any settings that controls this ?

On my own machine, it suggests file names that do not even exist.

Sure they arent hidden possibly, or feeding from another profile? Where do those files reside on the system?

Hi John,

the file is not hidden, it was deleted long ago.

in any case, this is not my main concern. My main concern is why Autocomplete is not working on the user's machine.  I was only using my example to illustrate the issue.
