Access weird bug with the name Pells converting to Palls

    Hi all,

    I've used Access for about a year now and for the first time am very
    stumped. I encountered today a very strange error (bug?) in my LastName

    Whenever I type the name "Pells" into this field, it gets
    automatically converted into "Palls". It doesn't matter whether I type
    it into the form or into the underlying table. I have no clue what
    could be causing this (and have googled to no avail). I've compiled/
    compacted/ reimported everything into a new database. . . . I've also
    checked the Spelling options and they seem normal. I created a new
    database with the table: tblName and tested just this name. Again the
    same problem.

    Does anyone have any ideas? Can someone else try it out on your
    computer? I'm using Access 2003.

    Perhaps you have auto correct enabled?

    open the application..and then go tools->options

    Then, click on the spelling tab...

    You might want to check some of the options..and while you are at
    this...click on the "AutoCorrect Options"

    I would actually suggest you un-check most of the options...especially the

    [x] replace text as you type ..

    There is quite a list of stuff that can be changed...but, for the most part,
    I would just uncheck all of that stuff....

    Thanks Albert. This did the trick!

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
