    I want to create autotext entries on one computer and then:

    1. Share them across a network on which each workstation has Microsoft Office ( Word ) installed, and

    2. Identify the file in which they are stored so that I can copy them to computers not on the network, e.g. my home computer

    How do I do that, once the autotext entries are established on one computer ?

    Thanks for the help

    I would store them (auto entries) in a template, store that template in your "workgroup templates" location ( I have mine on a server) and then change each users location of workgroup templates to reflect the path eg:T:\yourserver\Templates. If you do this correctly then the template will appear when they click (in word) File / New or you can add an icon to the menu bar.

    Hope this helps,
