Hi all.
I have a problem with the word processor as it wont spell check.It says works cannot finnish checking spelling and grammer check because an error occured.
When i check tools / options i discover that i have no dictionary at all. Just a drop down box with nothing in it.
Is this my problem ? and if it is how on earth do i rectify it.
Hope you understand this cause i dont.
thanks in advance.

Why don't you just remove it and reinstall it from your disks, that should cure it.

Are you using the works word processor or word.
My works never ever had a spell checker built in. To get a spell checker I had to install a version of word. If you dont want to do that there are spell checkers available for download. Google for spell checker. A lot of free ones.

I had a look at the click here;[ln];wrk works help and support page and while there is a spell check issue mentioned it referred to corruption of a Works 6 installation after addition of 7 or 8, so not really the same and the fix involved installing another Microsoft product anyway, which isn't helpfull. Without a disk, you may have problems fixing the spell check.
As a stop gap you could try Tinyspell click here . Change your word processor click here click here click here or maybe the entire office suite click here all free.
