Spell Checker

  TABBYCAT 13:02 11 Feb 2005

I have recently aquired a new computer system and would like to be able to transfer my MS Office 97 spelling checker personalisation. Where is such information held?
Similarly I have Word 200 with it's own spelling checker. Where does it store such information.
I don't want to have to input all my hundreds of corrections manually if I can help it.

Thanks for your help - unfortunately the chain breaks down at sub-folder "Proof", and there appears not to be a file called "Custom.dic" on the system.

Any other suggestions?

Obviously the spellcheck works on your old computer, so it must be somewhere, try a search from C: and see what it returns.
