retrieval of autotext

I have a problem with autotext retrieval. There is a default message which occurs occasionally asking if I want to replace the "normal.dot document". If you answer yes, you lose all the autotext created. I last used autotext yesterday and did not get the prompt last night. On turning on my pc today, again, there was no prompt. However, on trying to use autotext today, everything I have added in has disappeared. I have tried retrieval through searching files, documents and templates, but so far no joy.

Any ideas???

This is where things are kept:


1. Normal.dot: Stores formatted AutoCorrect entries, AutoText entries, keyboard shortcuts, menu customizations, custom toolbars, styles, macros.


2. .acl file: Stores unformatted AutoCorrect entries (the majority of your AutoCorrect entries).


3. custom.dic: Words you add during spellcheck.


4. Templates you create (.dot files).
