I remember that there were some postings about this before but just recently my spell checker became non functional.
Don't know if it was something I did or a fault in my system (WindowsXP).
I really need it when my wife is not arround to assist (she was a primary school teacher and spelling is her big thing)
Any suggestions for our many knowledgeable members ???

Bill, did you or your wife install Microsoft Works 7.0 (or later) recently?
If so, Spell Check will not function:

If that's the problem, there's a way around it without installing one of the programs listed on the above URL.

Thanks Bruce
You were spot on as Works(?) 7.0 was installed.
Reverted to earlier edition and all is funtions as it should.
