anybody know how I can solve this one, uptill yesterday my office 2000 worked fine using the UK dictionary, then it decided that it prefers the US version, upto yet every thing I have tried including system restore has failed, the best result I can get is the darn thing staying on uk dictionary for just one word, it then reverts back to the us dict--

Have you tried:


Open Word and go to > Tools > Language > set Language > choose English (UK) and click on OK

that the country can stay with a document...

Is is just the one document you're having the problem with? If so, do a Ctl+A to highlight everything, and then use Tools > Language > set Language > choose English (UK)

With my apologies if this doesn't help!

has your regional setting changed? if not try finding normal.dot and renaming it normal.old then restart word and it will make a new normal.dot. If this cures the problem you will then have to enter your personalization. If it does not work you can delete the new one and rename the old one.

I have office 2000 and have just checked word dictionary. It says custom.dic and it checks my spelling in English as opposed to US. This would point to your Regional Settings being the problem.

Go to Control Panel, Regional Settings and check it is set up for English (United Kingdom) also check Keyboard, Language (English British). You may be asked for your Windows CD so have it available.
