I have a user who I have upgraded from office 2003 to Office 2010. This user relies on his custom auto correct that he built into his normal.dot file for Word 2003. He would not like to have to reenter all 200 of his auto corrects. How can I convert his old Normal.dot file with auto corrects to the new Normal.dotm for Office 2010?
Here are some steps specific to Word 2003 and 2007. They may also work for 2010. Information is listed at: http://social.answers.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/wordcreate/thread/0bbde9f4-bc1e-4f1d-a468-67cf6625a51b
