    Correcting Words in Spell-Check: (Word 2000)

    How do you remove words that came in Word's standard spell-check? I would like to take out some of the things that it bypasses; i.e., *sen*, *n*, etc. (Sorry, I just realized that I probably should have put this question in the WORD forum.)

    BTW, I still need help with my question below as well. <img src=/S/bwaaah.gif border=0 alt=bwaaah width=123 height=15>

    TIA

    Hi Atelby:
    You cannot remove words from Word's standard dictionaries. You can force Word to question "correctly" spelled words by including them in an Exclusion dictionary.
    1. Search your computer for the standard dictionary (it will end with a .lex entension). It will probably be in C:Program FilesCommon FilesMicrosoft SharedProof.
    2. In Windows Explorer, navigate to C:WINDOWSApplication DataMicrosoftProof. (NOTE that this is NOT the same directory as where your mssp.lex was located)
    3. Create a text file with the same name, but with the extension .exc.
    4. Enter the words you wish Word to question & save the dictionary.

    Cheers,
