office 2011 Autocorrect

We have a user that is migrating from Office 2003 on a Windows system to Office 2011 on a Mac and has an extensive Word autocorrect library.  Is there a way to import this from Word 2003 to Word 2011?  If not, where can I find a list of them so that they can be recreated?

This location on the Mac does not exist in Lion/Office 2011 and I have been unable to find where it is storing the dictionaries.  Any other suggestions?

Thanks!

You can possibly find them in the following folder:

Users/Yourname/Library/Application Support/Microsoft/Office

This is an invisible folder and to see it follow these instructions:

In the Finder, choose File > Find.
From the far-left pop-up menu, choose Other.
In the list of search attributes, select the “File invisible” checkbox, and then click OK.
In the related menu, choose Invisible Items.

Evidently the file is actually stored here:

/Library/Preferences/Microsoft/Office 2011/ACL [English]

I have not tried this myself but would be interested to know if it works

Cheers
