Word 2010 Autotext stops working

Hi all,
                 I'm having a problem where Autoext in Word 2010 stops working after a while. The user opens a doc, autotext works for 5 or 6 times then stops. To get it working they have to save the doc then it comes alive again? The Autotext entries are located in a Normal.dot copied from their profile when they used Office 2003 and copied into the C:\Docs and Settings\Username\App Data\Microsoft\Document Building Blocks folder.Has anyone any ideas?

                                                                       Thanks,
                                                                              Eoin.

Scroll down this page (http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/word-help/add-autotext-HA010255209.aspx) to where it says
MIGRATE WORD 2003 AUTOTEXT ENTRIES INTO WORD 2007

Hope it works.
