    how do I change the language to English Aus

    Ive attempted to change by
    double clicking in bar, selecting Australia, click Default ,message displays "Do you want to change the default language to English (Australia)
    I click Yes
    and
    in Normal style check Language is set to Australia.

    see screen capture

    after my changes, I save,close and re-open template the default language is stil English (U.S)

    The best way to do this is system-wide in Control Panel, Region & Language settings. Done here, it will take affect system-wide (after a reboot) and be used by Word, too.

    The language setting is stored within each paragraph style in your template. You might want to run a macro like this
    Code:
    Sub SetLanguage()
      'Created by Chrysalis Design Pty Ltd
      'Changes all the styles in the document to Australian spelling
      Dim aStyle As Style
      For Each aStyle In ActiveDocument.Styles
        If aStyle.Type = wdStyleTypeParagraph Then
          aStyle.LanguageID = wdEnglishAUS
        End If
      Next aStyle
      ActiveDocument.Range.LanguageID = wdEnglishAUS
    End Sub

    hi Reid

    my pcs Regional settings are already set to English (Australian).

    all my other Word templates default language is set to English (Aus)

    its just this newly created template that displays lanuage as English (U.S)
