Dear Experts,

Some of users are mis-spelling the name of our company when composing new documents. It doesn't happen very often but it does happen.

Is there a way we can add some entries into the Autocorrect and deploy it via Group Policy? Or is there another efficient way of doing this?

So... I did some searching and as of word 2007 apparently there was no way to use GPO to alter the autocorrect (.acl) files, which are apparently files that each individual has.  However, you can add a new master .acl file that serves as a master autocorrect and deploy that using the office customisation tool OR you can use a scripting approach like this.
