Is ther any way to import Word's AutoCorrect Entries to WP 12 QuickCorrect. I am only looking to import words & phrases and not formatted text. Until now, no luck.

Hi. I know you can use Ed Weber's AutoCorrectUtilities, which is here, to get your AutoCorrect entries into text format. I'd probably suggest researching at WordPerfect Universe, and/or other sites on the net, first to see how to import into WP 12 QuickCorrect, I know I have seen instructions in the past. Depending on that, you could use Ed's file first, then use Find and Replace as necessary to get your entries into the proper format for importing into WordPerfect.

Harrie,

That link is dead.

I am still at loss how it will help migrate the entries from Word to Word Perfect. After I convert the AutoCorrect entries to text file, how will I make QuickCorrect import them.

I don't have the answer, I'm sorry. I also no longer have WordPerfect to do any experimenting. As I said, I'm pretty much 99% sure you can find the instructions for importing into QuickCorrect at WordPerfect Universe or other sites, without too much trouble.

The link is not dead for me, and the download is also working. I'm afraid I'm at a loss.

When you click AutoCorrectUtilities.exe, it downloads an index.php file.

I have banged my head around the internet for a while to look for a solution. It is always QuickCorrect to AutoCorrect and not the other way round. At Mike Deturi site, I found a method but it required PRD that I do not have.

I was able to download Ed's exe file in the post Harrie referenced, so the link is working fine. Ed's macro is excellent for creating a text file with your Word AutoCorrect entries in it, ready to be used as below. His exe download includes not just the macro but a doc file with detailed instructions on how to use it.

Then, to see how to take it from there, I went over to the WP Universe forums, as Harrie suggested, and did a basic search, which turned up this thread:

http://www.wpunivers...to quickcorrect

It requires some study and work, but it appears to be completely possible. I don't have any more time available to take it any further, but I wanted to test the link and see what WP Universe had to say. There are other threads there, as well, if this one doesn't help you take it from a text file to your WordPerfect QuickCorrect.

I again clicked the link and it downloaded index.php. I dragged it in WinRAR and then I was able to see the documents, so we both were right. :goodjob:

Is there any link through which I can download PRD?
