Use AutoCorrect in Word to Prevent SQL Sever

Too often I see SQL Server misspelled as SQL Sever. You can easily prevent this by using AutoCorrect in Word.

Start by clicking on File.


Figure 1. Click on File in Word.

Next, click on Options.


Figure 2. Click on Options.

On the Word Options dialog box, select Proofing and then click the AutoCorrect Options button.


Figure 3. Click the AutoCorrect Options button.

Enter sql sever under Replace and SQL Server under With. Click the Add button.


Figure 4. Click the Add button after entering the text strings.

You may also wish to add the following automatic correction to ensure proper casing of SQL Server. This allows you to type sql server without using the shift key but ending up with SQL Server as the result.


Figure 5. Ensure the SQL Server is always properly cased.

I've always wondered why Microsoft don't bother protecting their brand integrity with their own tool sets.
