Thanks to help from the community I was able to find my AutoCorrect files and transfer them to a colleagues computer. Then I wanted to take the next step and create an app that will do this. Before trying to code this, I was informed by a colleague that in around 2000, Microsoft Support created several sets of Macros for different functions. One set was called "Macro9" and it contains an AutoCorrect Utility. I was able to search the bowels of the Internet and actually find a copy of Macro9. However, when I tried to run it, I could not as it was written for 32 bit machines and I have a 64 bit machine. I would like to try that AutoCorrect Utility as I think it will save me a lot of work.
Is there a 64 bit version of Macro9? or
Is there a contemporary version of the AutoCorrect Utility in the Microsoft archives? or
Is there a newly programmed Microsoft AutoCorrect Utility?
If not, what do I have to do with the VBA coding to make it function on a 64 bit machine?
Thanks to one of the community members who responded to an earlier post, there is an existing Macro that allows saving and restoring the ,acl Autocorrect file. However this is very slow and converts the .acl to a Word Document, allows editing, and would restore the Word Document contents back to the .acl. I am looking for a utility that will allow be to append additional autocorrect files to the user's existing .acl file. and hopefully one that works with the existing .acl files and dot convert them back and forth between word and the .acl format.
