Microsoft Word 2003 Miscellaneous – Stop Auto-Correcting Ordinal Numbers

Depending on your configuration, Microsoft Word 2003 may automatically change keyed-in ordinal numbers such as 1st and 2nd with superscripted counterparts.

1. Select “Tools” – “AutoCorrect Options”.

2. When the “AutoCorrect” multi-tabbed dialog box appears, click the “AutoFormat” tab.

3. Check or uncheck “Ordinals (1st) with superscript” as desired.

4. Click the “AutoFormat As You Type” tab and repeat the above step.

5. Click “OK” to close the dialog box.
