View Full Version : MS Word Autocorrect entries



08-03-2002, 01:24 PM
I have a new computer and need to know if there's an easy way to transfer a large number of MS Word Autocorrect entries from my previous system (MS Word 97 in both cases). The entries are mainly proper names and abbreviations rather than spelling corrections and I'm loathe to have to recreate them all. Surely they are stored by Word in a file somewhere? (the Normal.dot template isn't it...)

Click on this one, and hopefully you will be sorted.

Search for *.acl I think (definitely in word 2000)

Good luck.

Robo, thank you. You've saved me a lot of hassle. The relevant file by the way is Mso97.acl

Much appreciated.
