My Spell checker in Word is not working.

F7 normally does this but only grammar now.

Options DDM greyed out for dictionaries.

Also tried to fix by reinstalling Word but still same.

Hope someon can put me rite - my spelin is not so good - so I relly needit!!

I use word in office 3

Try this, it might work

On the Tools menu, click Options, and then click the Spelling & Grammar tab.
Do one or both of the following:
To turn on or off automatic spelling checking, select or clear the Check spelling as you type check box.
To turn on or off automatic grammar checking, select or clear the Check grammar as you type check box.

Thanks for replying Fingees but tried tat. The problem seems to be that the tick box 'Hide spelling errors in doc' is greyed out.
And the dictionaries tab is also greyed out.

Where from there?

I wonder has your Word template become corupted ? Do a search on normal.dot
Delete any found instances of same. Word will recreate this when you launch it.
