I think it's the custom.dic and normal.dot files that need saving and moving. It's a shame if it was just these 2 files.
Let's read about a move from PC to MAC to see if that's it.
Hmm, makes you wonder if this is that simple.
Every time my mother board crashes or hard drive "expires," and I am faced with MANDATORY upgrade--via new computer purchase--to latest Windows Version and the latest of MS Office/Word--I always have LOSE 3-5 years of my MS Word Spelling Dictionary and my Auto-Text files--because the Store Technician say such a transfer/carryover to the new MS Office/Word is IMPOSSIBLE?
When I tried to post this Question to Microsoft "Help" -- they "reject" my 25-character (5 groups of 5 characters) Product Key for OFFICE-2010 (including MS WORD-2010)--saying "serial number not recognized - consult your manufacturer."
Can anyone help me to become MORE PROACTIVE & PREPARED for the next time I have to deal with this dilemma? Unknown why MICROSOFT keeps running away and hiding from this Honest Question??? Thanks in advance - mo (again my new/mandatory operating system is Windows 7)
