View Full Version : Word 2000 dictionary reverting back to English US

23-07-2004, 05:50 PM

Each time I set the language to English (NZ) and the spell & grammer to dictionary ot New Zealand when I start Word 2000 again the spell & grammer dictionary has reverted to English (US).

I checked the regional system settings and they are all set to New Zealand.

I am running Office 2000, on Windows XP Professional,

Any ideas anybody!!!

Are you clicking on the Default button when you have selected English (NZ)?
This will make it the default setting.
From then on any new documents will use that setting but you may find that documents that were saved before this change will still default to English (US). This is normal.

If you open an existing document that had the wrong setting, it reverts the setting in Word.

You need to copy and paste into a new document to get around this.

Some more info here:

Will check the site.
