    Spell Checker changes language (Word 2003, sp 2)

    I have a user that when she tries to spell check a particular document it switches to the French dictionary from English. I checked her default language, the languages settings in the Control Panel and deleted her normal.dot file. It does not do it with all her documents but it happened each time I opened this one. She reports that she has has this happen before.

    Does anyone know how to fix this?

    Hi jfrasier,

    Are you sure the document doesn't have one or more parts where the proofing language has been set to French? To make sure it's all set to English, press Ctrl-A to select the whole document, then use Tools|language|Set Language and select 'English'.
    Cheers,

    Wow, you are good. I didn't see how that would be the problem, but I tried it and that seems to have fixed it. Thanks.
