Default Migrate Office 2003 settings to Office 2007

Hello all,

Got a potential big problem at a small nursing college where I work. We are moving everyone to Office 2007 from 2003, however, many faculty and staff will have issues dealing with the following as we move them from their old PC (2003) to a new one (2007). I can't find any way to backup, and then restore, the following settings:

Dictionary
AutoCorrect
AutoText

Apparently, 2003 had the "Save My Settings" Wizard, but 2007 has no tool to import these settings. Obviously, I'd like to have the ability to do this, as there are (apparently) a kabillion medical terms and medications these folks need in these dictionaries. Further, I really have no experience dealing with AutoCorrect and AutoText, since I've never had any need for either. Any ideas folks? I've Googled until my Googler was sore, but no answer. Thanks.

If I remember correctly. You can backup everything in the "C:\Documents and Settings\*User*\Application Data\Microsoft\Office"

and

"C:\Documents and Settings\*User*\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Office"

Then overwrite the new files
