I did a spell check on a document part way through and there were no problems. Later when I spell checked the rest I found that it had completely failed to find really obvious spelling errors. If I ask it to do a further check using the ABC sybmbol or via the tools/options route it comes up with 'spell check complete' immediately.
I am using Word '97. I can't find the place which tells me which language it is set to, where do I find this? Also I have tried loading the doc. onto a floppy and trying it on a laptop. It behaves the same but when I tried a previous doc. and introduced some deliberate spelling errors it found them on both machines??
Thanks for the link,I checked the file Mssp2_en.lex as instructed in the article but it is the correct size,247kb and obviously it is present.The odd thing about this is that the problem only seems to affect this particular doc.
Thanks for the suggestions, I have tried advice from Klof Ron and Access Moron but to no avail, however I did get the messages, could not find files MsgrFR32.dll for French(belgium) and similarlarly mssp2_FR.lex for French(Belgium). Does this mean anything?
