SOLVED! Allow Autocorrect is the culprit when caps lock fouls up AutoExpand in combo boxes

    The problem: When caps lock is on, a combo box with Auto Expand set to Yes gets all tangled up. You type a few letters, and find that you are inserting letters rather than overwriting like you should for Auto Expand.

    The solution: If you set "Allow Autocorrect" (found in "Other" properties) to NO, you can have your caps lock cake and eat Auto Expand, too.
