Autotext entries are stored in normal.dot

Tried that as that is where i thought they were stored but no good i know that when you add a enw entry into autotext/correct the following files are changed
Normal.dot
Use.dat
system.dat
usage.dat
but 2 of tehm are far too big to move and i don't have a cd writer on the machine they are coming from

Autocorrect is stored in .acl files - search for these with Start > Find (or Start > Search if you have Windows XP, and make sure that you seach system and hidden file - you have to set this in More Advanced Options in later version of Windows). There are sometimes more than one .acl file (and I've never figured out why, but all but one seem to be ignored).
