    What's wrong with my Word (2003)? Only recently, when I click on any word in my document and press shift+F7, I get the message "No Thesaurus is available for German (Germany)". If I right click on the word, and select Synonyms in the drop down list, it works fine. But Iíve always used shift+F7, and the functionality seems to have disappeared.

    You can try setting the language for all the text in your document. Select the text, then choose Tools > Language and select English (I'm assuming, since you hail from MD). Then right click and see if the Thesaurus option is working now.

    Richelle - I checked the language setting, and it indeed was set to default to German (don't know why.) So, I changed it to English and made that the default. And, it worked! Then I closed Word, and reopened it, and it was back to German. So, I changed it again to default to English, and then saved the template (normal.dot). Then, all was well. Thanks for your help.
