    export autocorrection to other computer (Word XP Dutch)

    Good morning,

    A colleague of mine wants to export her autocorrection list to two other computers of her department.
    I found out that this function is embedded in the support.dot.
    I've opened this dot and made an autocorrect backup.
    When I tried to repair this document into another support.dot from another computer I get the message: This document does not have the right format for a backupdocument for Autocorrection.

    What am I doing wrong?

    I hope to hear from you!

    Many thanks in advance,
    Daphne <img src=/S/compute.gif border=0 alt=compute width=40 height=20>

    Hi Daphne

    For alternative methods of transferring the AutoCorrect entries see How can I import and export all my AutoCorrect entries, so they can be transferred to another machine? from the Word MVP site.

    This can happen if you have AutoCorrect entries that consist of more than one paragraph. See BUG: You receive a "The document may be in the incorrect format" error message when you try to restore AutoCorrect entries in Word.

    There is an improved version of the AutoCorrect backup/restore utility that handles multi-paragraph AutoCorrect Entries. It's a free download from the Word MVP site: How can I import and export all my AutoCorrect entries, so they can be transferred to another machine?. I haven't tested it in Word 2002, but it's worth a try.

    Boohoo... it still doesn't work. I've deleted all empty cells/rows, but It still won't accept it. The other solutions were only for Word 97 to Word XP....
    Do you have any other suggestions?

    Many thanks in advance!

    Have you tried the AutoCorrect.dot from the Word MVP site that both Tony55 and I posted a link to? I have tested it in Word 2002 (XP) now, and it works OK there.

    I'm sorry, I can't explain that. I made sure that I had some autocorrect entries consisting of multiple lines; they exported and imported correctly using AutoCorrect.dot.

    If you like, you can attach the backup document that causes problems. Remove sensitive entries first.

    I'll probably forget something simple, but here's the document...
    Maybe you can find something?

    Thanks!

    Hi Daphne,

    If your doc with the AutoCorrect entries (generated by Support.doc) is in Dutch, then look in the thread starting with my <post#=432185>post 432185</post#>. Maybe that works for you too.

    Hi Daphne,

    The document you attached is probably the one created by Support.dot, not by AutoCorrect.dot. The header expected by AutoCorrect.dot is not present in the document. Moreover, the macro in AutoCorrect.dot expects True and False instead of Waar and Onwaar. I have modified the document and attached it. See if you can restore it now, using AutoCorrect.dot.
