    Hi,

    The KB article WD97: Spelling, Grammar Not Available in Word Running on Windows 2000 (Q257643) should resolve your problem.

    Have you locked her ability to read the files in the Programs or System directories?

    Make sure she can at least have read access to the directory where the dictionary resides.

    I don't recall the correct directory in Word 97 but on my W2K machine running Word 2000 the directory looks to be C:Program FilesCommon FilesMicrosoft SharedProof.
