Word and Spell Check

By michaelh ·
I'm using Word 2000 SR-1. I've encountered a document emailed to me from China that has numerous spelling and grammar errors, however for some reason word is not checking any of these errors. If I type within the document and make a mistake it will catch it however it will not catch any of the existing mistakes.

Does anyone have a suggestion on this? I've made sure I'm using the English dictionary, made sure all the Spelling & Grammar options are set correctly, but still no dice.

It won't catch words like aduit = audit or directro = director

Please help

Highlight the text and go to Tools>Language Set Language.
Mark the text with your brand of English (such as English(US).
Go to Tools>Options go to the Spelling and Grammer tab and click Recheck Document in the lower left corner of the dialog box.
