We have a medium size network and like to set autocorrect options in Word 2010 with a group policy.

I found these settings in an earlier question:

Correct TWo INitial CApitals


Correct TWo INitial CApitals


Capitalize first letter of sentence


Capitalize names of days


Correct accidental usage of cAPS LOCK key


Replace text as you type


Correct keyboard setting


When I apply the keys mentioned above everything is under control except one setting and thats:

Capitalize first letter of table cells**

Does anyone know with which key this auto correct option can be controlled in Word 2010?

All these settings are stored in one big registry entry (binary): "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\14.0\Word\Data:Settings".

By analysing the special registry value names ({Name}_{Number}_1) I found out, that the first number points to a position of a range in this byte array.

So first I changed the known options separatly and later Capitalize first letter of table cells in the word menu and checked the Settings-Value after each step: every time one byte changed from 1 to 0 or from 0 to 1.

With a simple calculation I got the missing registry value name: Something like {Name}_232_1 will change the settings Capitalize first letter of table cells. The {Name} before is not recognized at all (as I tried with the known settings), so you can call it "fCapTable_232_1".
