Autocorrect entries import in Word 2010 from Word 2003
Posted on 2010-09-07
Hi all experts
We have a user who has just moved to a new PC.
Old PC had Office 2003 so obviously Word 2003 and he had quite a lot of autocorrect entries in Word 2003.
He wants them moved over as he has around 300 or 400 of them and he doesn't fancy doing them again...which is quite understandable.
The new PC has Office 2010 so Word 2010 in it.
I can't find any tool that will export settings from Office 2003 to Office 2010.
There are a few things I have seen for transfer from Office 2007 to Office 2010. So I could probably do Office 2003->Office 2007 and then to Office 2010
But this is obviuously very long winded process and the user might not be ready for such a long downtime.
So..does any one know how to transfer settings, specifically Autocorrect from Office 2003 to Office 2010.
If it is not possible, I need some confirmation from Microsoft or like someone's blog entry that officially confirms that MS has revmoed it knowignly and nothing users can do.
