    Keeping word mods (Word 2000, Windows XP)

    I currently running Word 2000 under--don't laugh--Windows 98. I've been promised a new computer at the office which will probably be running Windows XP. I have no problems with reloading Word 2000 but how do I keep my modifications such as smart keys, macros, dictionaries and word-correct. I probably have hundreds of these and don't want to have to recreate them all.

    Thanks.

    There probably are earlier posts on this subject, but here are some additional thoughts:

    * Macros are stored in templates. Make sure to check the Templates folder and the Word Startup folder to bring over your templates.
    * Dictionary files may be found here: C:Program FilesCommon FilesMicrosoft SharedProof
    * For AutoCorrect entries, see HOW TO: Move Word AutoCorrect Entries Between Computers in Word 2000
