SpellCheck not available in Word97

By jfradette ·
I have 5 new PC?s that came w/Win2000, running Office 97. Of these five, two of them are Compaq iPaq?s (legacy-free). On BOTH of the iPaq?s, the spellchecker is not available to the USER in Word 97. Spellchecker is available to the system admin?s tho and it is available in the other Office apps. The other three Win2000 system?s are clones and this prob doesn?t exist on these 3 systems.
Removing and reinstalling Office97 does not resolve the problem.
Why is spellchecker available only to the admin?s and not the user?
And why is it available in the other Office apps and NOT Word?
I?ve perused Compaq.com and the Web and found nothing on this problem.

SpellCheck not available in Word97

SpellChecker is available to all users through each version of Word (at least on Windows machines). Compaq iPaq's evidently have a "session" setting controlling the Word application environment, or each Word installation on your iPac machines has the feature turned off within the Word initialization file. I'mm sure the feature is there and Compaq may have to advise you where and how to enable the feature?

I did speak w/CPQ's tech support on this, not to my surprise, knowing that for the most part, many phone tech support roles are left w/scripted troubleshooting flowcharts and if the answer isn't there, then you're SOL, at the time I spoke w/them, they were unaware of this prob and therefore offered no help.
I see an error w/my orig descript. ...
THE PROB IS W/OFC 2000.
Sorry for my erring. Anyway, for the time being, I did a work-around and installed Ofc 97, this took care of my immediate situation, but not the original prob. If someone out there has a solution, I'd still like to hear from you.

Thanx and again I'm sorry for the error.
