Default Exporting autocorrections in Word 2003?

Hi. For various reasons, I need to reformat my harddrive and re-install XP
from scratch. But before I do I want to preserve my "autocorrect" entires
from Word 2003 (they're mostly all automatic spelling fixes). Is there a way
to export them, and then import them back into word 2003 after I re-install?

Thanks.

AFAIK, there's only been one report that this doesn't work in Word 2003.
AFAIK, the macro works in all versions.

Thanks, I'll try it. But I'm not terribly familiar with Macros; is there a
way to test if it's worked? HOw would I know if it's picked up all the
autocorrects or not?

As I understand it, the macro produces a text file that you can examine.

Indeed it does, and it seemed to work just fine for me in 2003. Thanks for
your help.
