Represents a single AutoCorrect entry. The AutoCorrectEntry object is a member of the AutoCorrectEntries collection. The AutoCorrectEntries collection includes the entries in the AutoCorrect dialog box.

Use Entries(index), where index is the AutoCorrect entry name or index number, to return a single AutoCorrectEntry object. You must exactly match the spelling (but not necessarily the capitalization) of the name, as it is shown under Replace in the AutoCorrect dialog box. The following example sets the value of the AutoCorrect entry named "teh."

AutoCorrect.Entries("teh").Value = "the"

Use the Apply method to insert an AutoCorrect entry at the specified range. The following example adds an AutoCorrect entry and then inserts it in place of the selection.

AutoCorrect.Entries.Add Name:="hellp", Value:="hello" 
AutoCorrect.Entries("hellp").Apply Range:=Selection.Range

Use either the Add or AddRichText method to add an AutoCorrect entry to the list of available entries. The following example adds a plain-text AutoCorrect entry for the misspelling of the word "their.'

AutoCorrect.Entries.Add Name:="thier", Value:="their"

The following example creates an AutoCorrect entry named "PMO" based on the text and formatting of the selection.

AutoCorrect.Entries.AddRichText Name:="PMO", Range:=Selection.Range
