entry defaulting to previous entry

P: n/a
I have a user who can not change data in a field to different data
that starts with the same letter. If the user types in "lag" as the
entry, and then tries to change it to "lg", the data changes back to
"lag" when the user hits Enter.

If the user enters "jl", it accepts that. But if the user then enters
"lg", the data entered again becomes "lag" when Enter is pressed.

This seems to happen only on her machine - I was able to go to another
machine, open the database and change the data to "lg", and it
accepted it.

Help!???

Access is trying to correct the spelling. You have to turn off the
