Autocorrect list for word

By michel.jonette ·
If I must format my hard disk where is the location of the file with the shortcuts that I have made. So I don't need to retype all the lists made before

I guess from the Subject of your problem that you want to save all the custom words you might have saved while using MS Word.
Open MS-Word, go to Tools>Options>Spelling&Grammer.
It shows something called "Custom Dictionery (Custom.dic). Click 'Dictioneries' button next to it, and hit NEW; this will show u the currect folder that has this file, you can copy this file to an alternate location -like floppy and save it.
This can then be retrieved or added as an additional dictionery when your machine is reformatted and reinstalled with MS Word.
Cheers.

The dictionary is one thing, but I feel you want to know where all the Autocorrect stuff lives, so that when you type "yours" in a letter, it comes up "Yours sincerely, etc".

If I am right, those settings live in the templates, and if you are like most people, and use the Normal.dot template (the default one) most of the time, most of your stuff will be in that template. In any case, if you find out where those templates are (tools>options>file locations) you should be able to copy them allto a floppy, unless they are real big, (so use two!)and copy them back after re-format.

Hope this helps.
