Printing Your AutoCorrect List

If you use AutoCorrect frequently, you've probably wanted to print your list out at one time or another, but unfortunately, this is not a feature included in Microsoft Word. Well, have we got a treat for you today! Here's a macro that you can install to print your list quickly and easily.

Sub PrintAutoCorrect()
Dim a As AutoCorrectEntry
Selection.ParagraphFormat.TabStops.Add Position:=72, _
Alignment:=wdAlignTabLeft, Leader:=wdTabLeaderSpaces
For Each a In Application.AutoCorrect.Entries
Selection.TypeText a.Name & vbTab & a.Value & " " & vbCr
End Sub

Note: See here for an introduction to macros. If you are unfamiliar with installing macros, you can also find a very detailed tutorial here.

Before running the macro, make sure you open a new document. It will create the list in the open document, and then you can print it and save or discard it. This tip reportedly works in Microsoft Word 97, 2000, 2002, 2003, and 2007.
