How do I copy custom dictionary on word 2000 onto a flash drive and then copy it to custom dictionary word 2003 on my new computer?

This explains all about custom dictionaries at: http://www.kerryr.net/webwriting/tools_custom-dicts.htm

The file you need is custom.dic and can be found at:

  • Win XP:
    C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Application Data\Microsoft\Proof\custom.dic

  • Win Vista and Win 7:
    C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Proof\custom.dic

  • Win 7 with additional Office Proofing Tools Kit:
    C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\UProof\custom.dic

You will need to enable Show hidden files and folders to find it. Simply replace the custom.dic on your new PC/Office with that one and it should work.
