When you type the name of an AutoCorrect entry that ends with a numeral and press ENTER twice, you may receive the following error message:

This program has performed an illegal operation and will be shut down.

If the problem persists, contact the program vendor.

When you click Details (on Microsoft Windows Millennium Edition, press ALT+D), you receive the following message:

WINWORD caused an invalid page fault in WINWORD.EXE at 0167:004460b7.

NOTE: The actual memory address may vary.

This problem also may occur when you press SPACEBAR after the AutoCorrect name and then press ENTER.


To work around this problem, when you create the name of an AutoCorrect entry, avoid names that end with a numeral (0 - 9).


Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed at the beginning of this article.
