    Spell Check - doesn't work (Word 2002)

    Something has disabled Spellcheck in new documents - for example when I typed in "Spelll Chek Deosnt Werk" in Word, the words were not underlined and when I initiated a spell check, none were highlighted. However, when I open a previously saved document and misspell words, they are immediately identified

    Suggestions?

    Hi Neil,

    Check the settings under Tools|Language|Set Language and make sure it's not set to 'no proofing' and that the 'Do not check spelling or grammar' option is not checked. If either of these is the case, select an appropriate language setting and uncheck the 'Do not check spelling or grammar' option, then click 'Default'.

    You should also check that the appropriate options under Tools|Options|Spelling & Grammar' are selected.

    Cheers
