    Word 2000 Spell Check

    Windows XP fully up todate, plus Word 2000

    My spell check in Word 2000 is not working, this as happened before and I have done "detect and repair", it reinstalled it I did a cold re-boot and it worked but not this time.

    Any ideas

    The problem was Normal.dot, the spell check worked in an old file so I just deleted contents and called it Normal2.dot then deleted Normal.dot and renamed Normal2.dot

    Works fine now

    Thanks
