Microsoft Word "EHR" automatically changes to "HER"

I am using Microsoft Word in a medical office. Every time I type "EHR" (Electronic Health Record), Microsoft Word immediately changes it to "HER". I have placed "EHR" in my custom dictionary but that has not helped. Is there anyway to change this behavior?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You should modify AutoCorrect. This should help.

Word 2007/2010/2013:

Office logo (2007)/File tab (2010/2013) -> Options -> Proofing -> AutoCorrect Options -> AutoCorrect.

Type EHR and you will see the entry: ehr---her. Delete this entry and the problem is solved!

Pre Word 2007:

Tools menu -> AutoCorrect Options.
Use the same procedure as above!

NO. You are wrong. This thread treats EHR... the other HSA.

I forgot to mention this is Word 2003 but between the two answers, I figured it out.

http://www.experts-exchange.com/Software/Office_Productivity/Office_Suites/MS_Office/Word/Q_28269569.htm  didn't help.

strivoli , (:-D)

However, be aware that EE is bearing down on the use of external links. It aims to be a stand-alone information source

You gave the nub of answer first, so I guess that would pass as acceptable
