I'd like to help you with your problem.
You're using Word 2003 and you'd like to stop it from automatically adding a space after the period, correct?
You can accomplish this by performing the following steps:
Click on the "Tools" menu and select the "Options" item.Click on the "Spelling & Grammar" tab.In the "Grammar" section, click on the "Settings" button.In the "Require" section, click on the "Spaces required between sentences" drop down list. Select the "don't check" option if you do not want Word to correct the spacing for you.Click on the "OK" button to save the changes and return to your document.
I followed your instructions. The "don't check" option was already present. Therefore, this did not correct my problem. I await your further comments and discussion.
Let's try to determine if Autocorrect is the source of your problem
Please follow the steps below and see if you are still experiencing the issue:
I did not understand.
were you able to find the AutoCorrect Options under the Tools menu?
The following statement "show or hide the AutoCorrect Options buttons , seclect or clearthe show autocorrect options buttons check box"
Do I leave the check marks there or clear them?
Sorry, let me clear up the instructions.
1. On the Tools menu, click AutoCorrect Options.2. Clear the Replace text as you type check box.
Then Click OK to save
okay, hold on
You are the man, Nick
