auto text feature in Word 2003 anybody use with ACT 2009

What I used to do in ACT 8 with Word 2003 was a very cumbersome process this saves a ton of typing.

 

this is the former procedure:

12-6-05            real trouble trying to make autotext work finally this I think works

Open ACT! 2006

Open word not from within ACT! but by clicking on start then programs then on Office then on Word

Click on tools on the menu bar then on templates & add ins then check the box in front of ACT.dot then click on OK

then in security alert window enable macros

Now in the untitled Word document open in this window create your auto text, type in the text click on Alt F3 or you can put some autotext buttons on the tool bar

Now from within ACT! Open to edit an ACT! Word template click alt I then T

Click on tools across the top of the Word window with the template open in it and as above click the box ACT.dot then OK

Now create the same autotext in this template then save the template

Wow!
