Office 2000, spell check

Whilst using word spell check I inadvertently clicked on add instead of change, how do I remove that word from the dictionary?

its a bit over my head. I might just uninstal and re instal office.

After you have removed word, there will still be files left behind and quite often they remember them type of things you have done, give it a go by all means.

I can always go to registry and remove word from there.

Search for custom.dic, probably in 'documents and settings' and open it in Notepad, remove the word and save it.

In Word go tools/options/spelling & grammar
click the dictionaries tab next to custom.dic
then edit
