I'm moving from xp pro to w/7 pro and word 2003 to word 2010.  I have years invested in the autocorrect dictionary and/or cust dict (not sure if they are the same).  I need to migrate it/them to 2010.  Anyone know how to do this?  TIA

To install just the proofing tools from Office 2003, run Office setup 2003 and choose the custom option. Uncheck all programs in the list and add a check to choose the options at the bottom of the programs list. On the next screen, set each top level item to be Not Available (red X icon). Expand the Office Shared Features branch and locate Proofing tools in the list. Expand proofing tools and choose English, setting it to Run from my computer. Finish the installation.

According to the comments of Jay Freedman, it says:-

"Copy/rename the old normal.dot template to something like MyAutoText.dot. If
it contains any macros, delete them. Store this template in the folder

%appdata%\Microsoft\Document Building Blocks

(paste that line into the address box of Windows Explorer and press Enter to
get to the folder even though it is hidden). Then restart Word."
