I have MS Publisher98 intalled on a Win XP Home system

When I try to do a spell check it tells me that a file is missing.

I have reinstalled publisher but the problem remains

Make a note of what file is missing, and try entering it to the Google search. It will probably be a dictionary. You may have the language set to English instead of American(US). :D

Publisher does not tell me what file is missing.

The message says "Publisher cannot find a file it needs to run the spellchecker for the language, English (New Zealand)

I have changed it to English (United States) but it still shows an error message for USA English

Since no one who knows has come in ...

According to a book I found, the spelling check isn't an option in the custom installation, so it should be there. It might pay to just reinstall Publisher. The dictionaries might have accidentally got lost. :D
