    'Recheck Spelling' not working (Word 2000)

    There's a misspelled word ("matrials") in my document and I can't figure out why Word thinks it's correct. I checked the only custom dictionary we use (on our network) and that word is not in there.

    I then went into Tools > Options > Spelling and Grammar tab and clicked "Recheck Document," but when I ran the spell check again, the word was not flagged.

    To be sure "Recheck Document" was working, I went to a new document screen, typed the word "matrials" and ran the spell check. It was flagged as a misspelling, which I corrected. I then did the "Recheck Document" routine on this test document, and the word once again was flagged when I ran the spell check. So the Recheck Document seems to be working. But why won't it work on my original document?

    Select the word and look in Tools > Options > Language. Is it set to "Do not check spelling and grammar"?
