Automatically Capitalizing Day Names

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: Automatically Capitalizing Day Names.

Every time you type a word in Word, the program does quite a bit of behind-the-scenes work to check out what you typed and, if necessary, make changes to it. One of the things that Word can automatically check and correct is the capitalization of days of the week. For instance, if you type the word "wednesday," Word would automatically change it to Wednesday. To control this behavior in Word, follow these steps:

  1. Choose AutoCorrect (AutoCorrect Options in some versions of Word) from the Tools menu. Word displays the AutoCorrect dialog box.
  2. Make sure the AutoCorrect tab is selected. (See Figure 1.)
  3. Figure 1. The AutoCorrect tab of the AutoCorrect dialog box.

  4. Select or deselect the Capitalize Names of Days check box, depending on whether you want Word to automatically capitalize for you.
  5. Click on OK.
