I have a new Mac with Word 6, and am transferring all my old stuff from my old mac with Word 5.1.  I can't get the new machine to recall my old stored addresses in order to print envelopes.  Is there a particular file that I need to copy over?

This is text copied from the MS Word for Mac 6.0 help files:

[Using the Word 5.1 Upgrade template

The macros provided in the 5.1 Upgrade template can help you:

Convert addresses that you created in Word version 5.1 to AutoText entries that you can use in Word version 6.0.
      Use Word 5.1 shortcut keys in Word 6.0.
      Add the Font menu to the menu bar.

If you performed a complete installation of Word 6.0, the 5.1 Upgrade template is installed in the Macros folder in the Word program folder. If you need to install the Macros folder, rerun Word Setup and select the Macro Templates check box under Wizards, Templates and Letters. To use the macros, choose the Open command on the File menu and open the 5.1 Upgrade template. (To list templates in the dialog box, select Document Templates from the List Files Of Type box.) Then follow the directions in the template.Before converting the addresses, make sure the Word Toolbar Prefs file used in Word 5.1 is in the Preferences folder in your System Folder. For information about using the addresses when you print envelopes, see "Using Addresses from Word 5.1 for the Macintosh," in Chapter 23, "Printing," of the Microsoft User's Guide.]

I have never used the word 5 function of storing addresses, but this help file implies that this function has been abolished in word 6, and that you will have to use "Autotext" as a substitute.  However, it then refers you to the manual (which I don't have).

If this is not a satisfactory answer, there will be no hard feelings on my part.  Good Luck, bdemarest
