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 C:\Documents and Settings\<Yourusername>\Application Data\Microsoft\Proof\CUSTOM.DIC on Win XP and at C:\Users\<Yourusername>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Proof\CUSTOM.DIC on Win Vista and 7.

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.
