the Autocorrect file is located at; Username/library/preferences/Microsoft/Microsoft Office ACL
Go there and locate the file.
Once located, do nothing with it. Launch Time Machine and go back to the time when you know the file was correct.
You will note that the window you are looking at in TIme Machine is the same window as the one you were looking at before you launched TM.
Once you are back to a time that you know is good, click on the file in the TM window.
Now hit Restore in the bottom right hand corner.
The good file will now replace the bad file and once you quit from TM you should be good to go
Let us know
Do you know of any way to restore these? I use Word For mac 2011. I also use Time Machine and it was up to date before the "improvement". I also did 7 Apple "upgrades" at the same time, including some kind of firmware thing. Maybe this is the culprit, but I am nowhere near savvy enough to know. All I know is 7 years of work is now down the drain, as I use AutoCorrect extensively.
