MS Office 2003 dictionary language

Hi, I have a problem wil the spell check in Word 2003. The default language is set to English UK but the spell check still insists on checking using English US, how can I stop this? I've tried modifying the dictionary to using only English UK but this hasn't helped. Am I doing something wrong? I've only been using this version of Office for the past few days.

Check the setting for the Dictionary.

Go Start then All Programs then Microsoft Office then Office Tools choose Language Settings. Make sure only UK English is selected.

Not sure on the file extension, but u could try locate the dictionary files by doing a search for *.dic files, and swap the names (rename the files) around so Office opens the UK dictionary when it opens US.dic and the US when it opens UK.dic (if that makes sense).

You can always change it back if this doesnt work
