spell check error

My spell check will not detect miss-spelled words in Word 2007. My computer
DOES detect spelling errors when I am writing using other parts of the office
suite (such as Outlook), but it will not work in word!! The even odder thing
is, I don't get an error, Word just doesn’t red-underline misspelled words OR
say they are misspelled when I run spell check. On top of that, Word DOES
detect grammar errors...? Weird!

I have completely un-installed and then re-installed the all of office but
Word still refuses to spell check. (It is weird though because even though I
un-installed the whole office suite, when I restarted my outlook, the
settings were still intact and my e-mails were still there. Even my password
was still there, settings were still there, calendar dates, everything was
still there....)

For word: Here are the options under the Office button>word
options>"proofing tab" and whether they are disabled or enabled:

Ignore words in UPPERCASE: Enabled
Ignore words that contain number: Enabled
Ignore Internet and file addresses: Enabled
Flag repeated words: enabled
enforce accented upper-case in french: disabled
suggest from main dictionary only: enabled

Custom dictionaries tab:
"CUSTOM.dic" :enabled
dictionary language: English U.S.


check spelling as you type: enabled
use contextual spelling: disabled
mark grammar errors as you type: enabled
check grammar w/ spelling: enabled
show readability statistics: enabled
writing style: Grammar and style

exceptions for "Document1":
hide spelling errors in this document only: disabled
hide grammar errors in this document only: disabled

What do I do? Is this a common error?

Re: spell check error

Try clicking on Office Button | Word Options | Proofing | check the
"Check spelling as you type" box | uncheck the "Hide spelling errors in
this document only" box | OK.

In some cases in an upgrade installation to Office 2007 from Office
2003, the English spellcheck files do not get installed. In Windows XP,
look in your "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Proof"
folder to see whether the MSSP3EN.LEX and MSSP3ENA.LEX files are
present, and if not, add the English proofing tools feature from your
Office 2007 DVD.

Re: spell check error

Thanks.

Still not working. I installed the two files that you noted (as they were
infact missing).

And I checked the settings too.

Re: spell check error

Try re-running Office 2007 setup from Windows Control Panel add or remove
programs and from the Office Shared Features, disable the proofing tools.
Allow setup to complete, then run it again and enable the proofing tools.

Re: spell check error

Hey Graham,

I got it to work in Word. I changed the language to English UK and my spell
check started working!!!

For some reason "English US" does not work properlly. Do you know where I
can re-install the English US dictoinary? Mine is obviously corrupt.

What I did:

Double-click "English (U.S.)" in the bottom left>Select "English (U.K.)

Re: spell check error

Did you try what I suggested? That would re-install the proofing tools.
