MS Word's critical files

Word comes with a supplemental macros template that includes the AutoCorrect Utility. The utility is used to backup and restore entries. If you only do the backup portion, it will create a regular Word document that you can print.. In Word 2002/2003: it's part of the support.dot (included on Office installation CD)
