Can anyone help. We have a user who is using a notebook which has Windows XP installed with Word 97. When he goes to Tools - Options - Spelling & Grammar and in to Dictionaries the custom.dic is unchecked - he then checks it, clicks OK and comes out but the custom.dic still doesn't show on the list. When he goes back in to Dictionaries, the custom.dic is unchecked again. No matter how many times he tries this, everytime he goes back in the custom.dic is unchecked. He has tried creating a new custom.dic but although he checks it and clicks OK - it also won't appear on his list and when he goes back in, it has gone back to being unchecked. I have searched various newsgroups and articles but can't find anyone who appears to be having the same problem. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
