Printing AutoCorrect Entries

Please Note: This article is written for users of the following Microsoft Word versions: 97, 2000, 2002, and 2003. If you are using a later version (Word 2007 or later), this tip may not work for you. For a version of this tip written specifically for later versions of Word, click here: Printing AutoCorrect Entries.

Word provides a way to print just about everything related to your document, except (oddly enough) your AutoCorrect entries. If you want to print them, you are forced to use a macro to accomplish the task. The following macro will create a document, list all the AutoCorrect entries, and format it:

Sub PrintAutoCorrect()
    Dim ACE As AutoCorrectEntry
    
    Documents.Add
    For Each ACE In Application.AutoCorrect.Entries
        Selection.TypeText ACE.Name & vbTab & ACE.Value & vbCrLf
    Next

    With ActiveDocument.PageSetup
        .Orientation = wdOrientLandscape
        With .TextColumns
            .SetCount NumColumns:=3
            .EvenlySpaced = True
            .LineBetween = True
        End With
    End With
    ActiveDocument.Paragraphs.TabStops.ClearAll
    ActiveDocument.Paragraphs.TabStops.Add Position:=InchesToPoints(1.25)
    Selection.HomeKey Unit:=wdStory
End Sub

When completed, you can print the document so you have a permanent record of your AutoCorrect entries.

Please provide step-by-step on how to enter the macro, etc. I need help with this! Thanks.

Sorry, but this doesn't work well. All text containing rich text is losing all formatting and all special characters are incorrectly represented

Can you plesae tell me if there is a way and where to ENTER the above macro? I have never done this. Is it easy enough for a beginner?

Wow...thank you so very much. I was using a pen and paper to write down the short cuts and them putting them in word to print. UGH. I really appreciate your help. OH...if I have diagram images that are in a word library...how can I ensure that all of them are the same size? I copy and paste them into home inspection reports. I do the right click and look at the sizing but some of them are still different even if I change the height and width. I dont know much more thant the basics. Maybe some of the images are not the same type of file extension to begin with. I dont know. Many thanks!!

Dear Mr. Wyatt,

This tip was exactly what I was looking for - many thanks!!

However, I am working in Germany and my computer has both a German AutoCorrect list and an English one. When I apply your macro, I get the list of the German entries.

How can I adapt the macro so that the English list is printed instead? Most grateful for any help you can give!

A. Janssen
