Auto Correct Problem

    My company is using an Access based program. We use an Auto Correct file
    (*.acl) to post entries: e.g. TT = TELEPHONE TO, CW = CONFERENCE WITH.
    The problem is that we want these codes to function only when using Access.
    People are upset when using Outlook or Word and they type in letter
    combinations and get posting code entries. No one wants to have to keep
    turning the "replace text as you type" function on and off as we change MS
    programs.

    Can I shut off the AutoCorrect function "replace text as you type" in all
    but Access?
    Alternatively, is there a way to use different *.acl files in each program:
    Access, Word, Outlook, etc.?
