Running OpenOffice version 4.1.3 on Windows 7 Pro computer.
I purchased a new computer. I have many hundreds of autocorrect entries on my old computer.
How do I move these autocorrect entries to the new computer?

I believe all you need to do is to copy your user profile from the old computer to the new one. Easily done with a USB stick.

If you only want the auto-correct entries you can copy part of your profile. See [Tutorial]The OpenOffice User Profile for more information on what is stored where in your profile.

Note that the profile is OS independent; so if you move from say Windows to Mac you can still copy the profile, or part thereof, across.

1. Update AOO on the old PC
2. Install AOO on the new PC
3. Move the entire profile C:\Users\xxxxxx\AppData\Roaming\OpenOffice\4\user to the new PC.

AOO is now identical on both PCs.
