How do I print out my AutoCorrect file in Excel or Word?
I have many macros and need to audit them without having to seek them out in the individual lines of Auto Correct.
I can do this with Spell Check but don't know how to print AutoCorrect. Dos?
Thank You

Hiya and welcome

This is not my forte but I'll have a go :p

I didn't know you could print it out. I have found this:

http://www.microsoft.com/enable/training/office2000/autocorrect.htm

Ah, apparently its an .acl file. You may be able to locate this on your PC.

having a look here:

http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q212/2/42.ASP

near the bottom, it says

Settings in HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\9.0\Common
This key is used by other Microsoft programs, such as the Office programs. Likewise, these settings are shared between programs. Changes made in one program's settings also appear in the other programs.
Assistant: Contains information about the chosen Office Assistant.

AutoCorrect: Contains the path to the .ACL file (which contains the AutoCorrect list) and lists the current settings for AutoCorrect.
Maybe a bit indepth, hmmm....

First, it's real helpful to include the version. Especially because autocorrect is handled differently in Office 97 and Office 2000. Let us know.

I've also moved your post to the Business Applications Forum.

Macros are stored in the normal.dot file (Word) and in the personal.xls file (Excel) for either version. You'll want to back these files up if you're thinking about "moving".

Let us know what version, tho, k? The registry key referred to in Eddie's post above (in the quote) is for Office 2000. Office 97 is 8.0 instead of 9.0.
