2 I use Auto Text quite frequently; however, it also seems to have gone bonkers.

I get hold of a previously printed letterhead, select it all and then go to Auto Text where it is virtually saved for the next usage, however, more often than not when I go to Auto Text again to use it; I find that the printed letterhead does not show! Sometimes part of the letterhead shows, but whatever -- I cannot use it in the letter or email I am constructing!

Does this sound like a simple thing to fix?

When I go to Auto Text, often only my name appears; the rest is just yellow lines so that means I have to save it again.

Fortunately I saved the letterheads previously just in case I needed them. Lucky me!

A sample of this appears below-

I use XP Professional, Word 2003 and Microsoft Outlook

Can you help me, please?

It sounds like the Auto Text entries may have become corrupt. Try deleting them and recreating the entries.
