    Eliminate non-words by macro! (Word 2000 >)

    I have not attempted a macro yet, but thought I'd first ask if anyone has something available already!

    When I run an anagram program from a website, it gives all possible combinations of letters you provide. If I copy these combinations into word, I was thinking of running a macro that will test each word and delete the ones that do not qualify as a valid word. The macro should preserve only those that the spell checker does not underline in wavy red lines.

    Does anyone have a macro that does this? Else I will need to attempt to record one and get some help to customize it!
    Regards,

    I'd be approaching it by getting an anagram program that generates only valid words from the outset. There are lots about, but my longtime favourite is TEA - The Electronic Alveary. It's available as Windows shareware or DOS <img src=/S/free.gif border=0 alt=free width=30 height=15>ware. Highly recommended!

    This is an easier way out. I never considered anagram freeware.
