Spellchecker on Word for Office 2000 Pro Edition

  hockeystar1985 16:31 24 Aug 2004

I am unable to check my very poor spelling when using word. The spellchecker does not underline any mistakes or correct spelling errors as i type or even if i hit F7 or the check spelling button on the toolbar. I have tried to set the default language to english UK but it keeps automatically reverting back to english US.

Any suggestions on what i need to do???

I type this direct from a PC Mag dated Jan 2003 as follows:

There are two possibilities here: the default language and style languages. First, create a new blank document. Got to Tools, Language, Set Language. Select English (UK) from the list then click the Default button. Next, go to Format, Styles and select, in turn, each of the styles you commonly use. You should see a summary of the style on the right, including the proofing language. If this still shows 'English (US)' then click Modify. In the next dialogue click Format, then Language, and select English (UK). Exit Word - if you are asked whether to save changes to Normal.dot, then do so.

Worth a try..Lap..

Did it work hockeystar1985 ? Or did you resolve it another way.
