MS Word Autocorrect - Transfer to other PCs?

  Raziel_uk 10:52 26 Nov 2006

Can someone tell me if there is a quick way of "exporting" the auto correct list in Word to another computer?

Obviously my business machines have 10s (or probably hundreds) or business specific auto corrects that I would now like to transfer to the machine at home (as I'm doing a lot of work from home at weekends). But having to insert them manually will take ages.

Surely there is a quicker way?

A lot of people say about the custom dictionary, but this doesn't appear to work as opening the custom.dic file only shows words that have been added to the dictionary, not the auto corrects.

Its a while since I did it, but I think the auto-correct data is stored in a .acl file. This can be copied and pasted into your other machine.

Thanks, I'll have a look.
