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.
