I write a lot using Works 2000 5.0. For some reason, I've noticed that somewhere along the way the spell checker no longer underlines mis-spelled or unknown words, and even if I highlight the mis-spelled word, it will say it is spelled correctly. I have tried going into tools and spelling and all the proper things are checked and all. Why is this?

There could be several problems. Take a look at the MS KB article below and it will cover all the possibilities.

Let us know how it turns out.

Actually, I can't even open the spell check, as when I type a mis-spelled word, the program recognizes it as spelled correctly, even if I just type something like, fddgbhj.

But all in all, is it called spell check? Mine just says: Spelling and Grammar. Microsoft Product Support says to: Type an incorrectly spelled word and run the spelling checker.


Click Edit Custom Dictionary.
I can't even find that command anywhere.

Have you tried Item 4 in the MS article. Setting custom.dic to custom.old or item 5 which is a maintenance feature? Also have you tried Item 3?
