1. On the computer on which you want to use the custom dictionary, start Windows Explorer.
2. Insert the floppy disk (the one that you used in part 1) into the floppy disk drive of this second computer.
3. In Explorer, click the floppy disk drive, right-click CustomCopy.dic, and then click Copy.
4. Locate the following folder
path:\Application Data\Microsoft\Proof
where path is the path to Microsoft Word. For example, the full default path for Office XP or Word 2002 is as follows:
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office 10\Application Data\Microsoft\Proof)  
5. Right-click the Proof folder, and then click Paste.
6. Start Word.
7. On the Tools menu, click Options.
8. Click the Spelling and Grammar tab.
9. Click Custom Dictionaries.
10. Click Add.
11. Click CustomCopy.dic, and then click OK.
