Can the WordPerfect Office 2000 file named wt9us.uwl (user word list
for QuickCorrect) be printed as a hard copy or, better yet, converted
to a Microsoft Word (Office 2000) file?

Based on a Google Groups search, there is a utility that can convert
this list into a WordPerfect document, which can then be printed or
converted. To quote the newsgroup postings:

"Run the wt9sptEN.exe program.  One of the options is to convert a
WPWin 9
UWL file to a document which can then be printed."

Google Groups Search Terms:
wt9us.uwl print


Another newsgroup post says that this exe utility file should be
located in your ...\Shared\Writing Tools\9.0 directory.

Google Groups Search Terms:

The Corel WordPerfect Knowledge Base includes an article with detailed
instructions for doing this in WordPerfect8. It should be a similar
procedure for WordPerfect9.

Good luck converting your file!

Thank you very much for your research.  The wt9sptEN.exe converts the
user word list to a 50 page document.  This definitely helps to have
something to read from but I still would need to enter every one of
them by hand into AutoCorrect of Microsoft Word.  That is why my
question stated:  "or, better yet, converted to a Microsoft Word
file?" I know that the Microsoft AutoCorrect is equivalent to
QuickCorrect in WordPerfect but it uses a file called MSO1033.acl
found in \Application Data\Microsoft\Office and is user-specific. So,
in clarification, can the wt9us.uwl information be transfered into the
MSO1033.acl (AutoCorrectList) file so that I do not have to mannually
enter hundreds of entries?

I didn't realize that "Microsoft Word file" meant imported to Word's
autocorrect list. I thought you wanted a Word document. I will do some
further research and see if the word list can be imported in Word.

There is not a pushbutton way to do convert WP QuickCorrect entries to
Word AutoCorrect entries, but it can be done with some manual work. It
involves formatting your WP QuickCorrect entries in such a way that
Word can restore them into its AutoCorrect list.

Take a look at this newsgroup posting for one person's way of doing

A Google Groups search will show some other suggestions:
Word autocorrect import WordPerfect

The postings mention a Word macro that restores AutoCorrect settings.
The macro and instructions for how to use it are available at the
Microsoft Knowledge Base.
