    Autocorrection list (Word XP Dutch)

    Goodmorning,

    Can anybody help me with the following?

    I gave one of our users a completely new profile, as if I just made a new user (I saved the old one of course).

    Fortunately I didn't forget to save the *.nk2 file for his Outlook autofill-list.

    What I did forget was the autocorrectionlist for Word. This is the *.acl list, isn't it? Please correct me if I'm wrong?!
    At first I thought it was the custom.dic, so I copied this file to his new profile.

    So what did I do next: I copied all the *.acl files from the old profile (..Application dataMicrosoftOffice).
    I really hoped that this was the trick! But it wasn't...
    Can anybody tell me what I did wrong and how I can 'activate' this users' autocorrection list?

    Many thanks in advance!!!

    Unformatted AutoCorrect entries are stored in .acl files, and formatted entries are stored in Normal.dot. Since most AutoCorrect entries are unformatted, copying the .acl files should work. Are you sure you copied them to the correct location? Sometimes Windows gives a new profile a name such as username.Windows or username.Domainname.

    We don't use the Normal.dot for that, because of Roaming Profiles.
    But I just found out that the user wasn't logged of while I was replacing the *.acl files... *sigh*... so I did it again when we made certain he was logged of, and now he has his autocorrection options again.

    It's a shame users don't listen unless there's some cake or whatever, ain't it?

    But, many thanks all the same!!! And I hope you have a nice weekend!

    Bye bye,
