Default How do I move autocorrect terms I have created to a new computer

I have defined a number of terms in autoorrect to insert phrases in a
document. For example I might define "/GW" as George Washington and that name
would be inserted whenever I type /GW.

I just got a new computer that has Word 2003, and I want to move all of
those defined terms to the new computer but I cannot find where they are
stored by the Word program.

Word's autocorrect can be used for much more than simple text phrases - eg
you could use it to insert graphics or tables etc.

If you would like to extend the concept of autocorrect to other
applications, then an application I came across recently may appeal -
GhostTyper http://www.sc-data.de/ghosttyper/en/index.php3. It has proved
invaluable for inserting hard to remember web links in newsgroup postings,
for example. There's a trial available.
