    Hi

    I have created over 400 auto texts in Microsoft word 2003; I have upgraded my PC and was wondering how I transfer them over to my new PC. If you could help that would be fantastic.

    Kind regards

    AutoText entries are stored in your Normal.dot template (default location: C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Microsoft\Templates), so you can either copy Normal.dot to the Templates folder on the new PC, or copy it to another location and use the Organizer (in Tools | Templates and Add-Ins...) to transfer the AutoText entries to your new Normal.dot.

    Isn't it the case that some Autotext entries might be stored in other templates, but not in Normal.dot?

    Yes, that's true, but only if the user has explicitly stored them in another template - they're stored in Normal.dot by default. I assumed that if the OP had known that, he'd have known how to transfer them too.

    You're probably right.
