    Saving Useful info (Office 97)

    I just recently changed laptops (work), and received a new one with the same MS office version. Now I know that custom.dic is the file to have on the backup path (I do at home), but I forgot and lost it....Oh well. (I do a full backup weekly, and incremental daily) I also lost all the auto-correct customized notations that saved me a bunch of time.
    My question is whether anyone knows what file to save to retain the auto-correct settings for backup.?

    Search your computer for .ACL files, and see which ones have been updated recently. In Word 2000, they use the language code in the name (1033 = English U.S., for example). I don't remember in Word 97...

    For more tips, tools, and techniques for migrating Office from one computer to another, or your settings from one version to another, search this board for migration or similar terms.

    Great!
    At home is Office 2000, and it's now in the backup.
    I'll see Monday about 97, but at least I know where to look.

    Thanks

    I haven't looked into this for awhile, but you might see if the advice in <post#=5112>post 5112</post#> is still valid.
    Cheers,
