Default MS word 2007, capital letter after number (1. place turn to 1. Place)

I have trouble with MS word 2007. For example some sentence:

Expectation: I finished on 1. place.

Reality: I finished on 1. Place. //why is Place with capital, and its not new sentence?

I have no idea which setting cause that problem , or is that even possible. I hope that I will find some solution.

It is how the Autocorrect command to capitalize the beginning of a sentence works. You can switch the option off, if you want. Ctrl-Z (undo) will uncapitalize it.

By Autocorrect's algorithm, a full stop (period) followed by a space signals the beginning of a new sentence, just as pressing the Enter key starts a new paragraph and sentence.

For usage, I think you mean first place rather than one place.
