VBA code to read from the Word Autocorrect ( .acl) file or some other way of opening this file and reading data from it

I would like to get all entries stored in my Word Autocorrect file (a file with the extension .acl") into an Excel sheet or in some other format such as .csv file so I can read data from it.
I am wondering if there is way for achieving this. I know you can use VBA to add auto correct entries to this file but I would like to do the opposite that is read data from the auto correct file. If it is not possible to do that using VBA, is there any other application or means through which I can open this .acl file and read data from it.
Thank you for your help.

Thank you for your comment. However, this is not what I am looking for. I am not looking for transferring my autocorrect file (with the *.acl) extension from one PC to another (I am already familiar with that procedure). I am, looking for a way of reading from the *.acl file into an Excel file or some other format (such as *.csv) so that I can open it and directly read it.

Well the "idea" behind the solution is to get behind the curtain and read the code-behind code in the little form that comes with the zip file in the link i provided..manipulating the code should get you to the end result.

Thank you very much. Apologies for not understanding you suggestion in the first instance. The macro in the ZIP file did solve the problem after a slight modification.
Many thanks for your help. Greatly appreciated!
