Word 2000 will not spell check

It ignores all manner of incorrect spellings. I've tried repairing it; and I've also re-installed it.... but it still will not spell check the document correctly.

Please can you help

Win98SE by the way!

thanks

you may have it set to american dictionary so go to tools - right click on spelling and then click on language

A friend of mine installed Zone Alarm 5 she ended up having all her documents being spellchecked in French! Have you installed it lately?

Have you checked that spelling and grammar are switched on? Check in Word, Tools, Options and then Spelling and Grammar Tab. Tick appropriate boxes. I've inadvertantly switched them off in the past.

thanks for the advice...I've found the solution. Somehow (under tools, language,set language,) the 'do not check spelling or grammar' box was ticked. I don't know how though!
