I have office 2000 and in word when i want to do a spell check the tool bar and it is not there.

So i went to tools>Options and the spelling and Grammer Tab is completely greyed out.

Can any one tell me who to activate this. Have re-installed this a few times and nothing.

make sure that the document you are checking is not protected, WD2000: Some Menu Commands Unavailable (Document Protection)


If that is not the case, and you are not able to get that tab, or that option even with a blank document, then maybe your normal.dot has become corrupted. search your system for normal.dot and rename it to normal.old and then restart Word. See if you have the option now.


You could also do a Detect & Repair which is available when you open Word, Click on Help and select Detect and Repair.

What worked for me recently with Word97 (not 2000 but it may be related) is MSKB article 257643. It's do with user permissions to the registry for Windows 2000 and above.

Hope this helps
