The Auto Spelling checker is on. - no wavy lines inciating errors. There is a
note to turn wavy lines on in help -how do you do that?
I've not seleted just apar of the document. I'm not using a decorative font,
I've tried checking and rechecking. Spell checking is not working with any
document. - I did not apply the Do not check spelling or Grammar option. I
checked Tools |Language |Set Language option. I checked using the Reveal
formatting option. Their is now hidden text. The text is in upper and lower
case - all of it nonsense words. None of these words are flagged

When you checked the Set Language dialog, did you have all the text
selected?

Suzanne,

Thank you for your help. I figured it out. I noticed that if i tried using
the F7 key, I got a message that "Word cannot open the spelling file
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\PROOF\MSSP3EN.LEX" , this
pointed me in the correct direction, that is was a rights issue. Once I gave
the user Read and Read & Execute rights, the problem was solved.
