I came here to provide a small tip so that it can help anyone struggling with Spell Checker in Word 2007, like I was. I was facing this problem since long time on my system and finally came to know its cause and solution.
May times Word 2007 stops checking spellings because its English Dictionary gets disabled automatically. The reason behind this is it may conflict with older Outlook Express. So in order to fix this:
- Start clicking the Office Button.
- Click Word Options
- Click Add-ins
- Click Manage
- Click on the english dictionary and re-enable
Thatís it. Restart MS Word and the problem gone.
