Problem of autocorrecting names when entered in forms even when the feature is disabled.

Problem of autocorrecting names when entered in forms even when the feature is disabled.

We are using MS Access 2003 with other products of MS office 2007, unchecked the auto correct features in MS Access by going to tools -> options -> General -> Name Auto Correct

The problem is not seen in machine that I unchecked, where as still happening on user machines.

a) Should the setting be done in all user machines.

 What would be the fix for this.

Thanks!

After you un-check (disable) the option,  run the compact/Repair utility.

This is based on a regular text box, any ideas how to make it to work.

Say we enter 'Cotten' which is a last name, it auto corrects to 'Cotton' inspite of having the name auto corrections unchecked.
