  • Office 2010 Auto-complete Transfer

    I have medical transcription auto-complete entries on Office 2007 and Office 2003 running on XP Professional Platform. I need to transfer them to Office 2010. Everything I have found does not work. Any suggestions...?

        It may be that you may need to copy the file that ends with a .NK2 extension. You will need to show ALL hidden files and Show extensions from the "view folder options" in order to find the file. Copy it in the same location on the new machine with the same name.

        Hope that it helps.

            You are correct Ossain. I was able to find a different article from the one (already listed) on Microsoft's knowledge base that walks through the the transfer of Word autocomplete between computers. It refers Word 2003 but hoping that it is still applicable.

              AutoText is being moved back to Normal.dotm to facilitate autocomplete. For users going from Office Word 2003 to Word 2010, we recommend that you move the document to %AppData%\Word\Startup, and then follow the steps to upgrade a document. Office Word 2007 users will find their autotext automatically moved.
