MsWord from Office 97/speller?
I was not able to find any software section so I hope someone will still input any suggestion.
The problem is we have several users who require to work in two languages (French Canadian and Englis Canada)in MsWord. For some obscure reason we are not able to change the default language between those two languages. When selecting french as default it return to englis us. And the fun part is when using speller it uses the British speller. I tried deleting the ?.lex file relate to British but then i was not able use english, neither french. In both cases thesaurus will not switch accordingly We did install the patch sr-2. If anyone can solve this or anyone experiment the same please poste or email me. I"m getting desperate. (and yes i did try re-installing.)
Try the following address. Don't miss the links to related articles at the bottom of the page.
I trie what microsoft suggest and still does'nt work. Text is selected and then set the language and the use the speller that part do work but not the thesaurus. It keeps saying that file "msth_fc.lex" cannot be find when in it is in the appropriate location.
I hope this does it.
WD95: Err Msg "Can't Find Thesaurus File MSTH232.DLL" U.K. File
The information in this article applies to:
Microsoft Word for Windows 95, versions 7.0, 7.0a
The following error message may appear when you run the Thesaurus in Microsoft Word for Windows 95:
Word cannot find the Thesaurus file MSTH232.DLL for English (UK)
This error message will occur when all of the following are true:
You are running Microsoft Word for Windows 95, version 7.0 or 7.0a.
You are running Microsoft Windows NT 3.51 or Windows 95.
The language in the document is set to English (UK).
You run the Thesaurus on the document.
To work around this problem, change the language of the document to English (US) as a temporary setting and run the Thesaurus.
To change the language of the document, follow these steps:
1. With the document open in Word, click Select All on the Edit menu.
2. On the Tools menu, click Language.
3. Under Mark Selected Text As, select English (US) and click OK.
4. On the Tools menu, click Thesaurus.
The Thesaurus will check your document.
5. On the Edit menu, click Select All.
6. On the Tools menu, click Language.
7. Under Mark Selected Text As, select English (UK), and click OK.
I just tried your suggestion and it still select British for Thesaurus when English US is default. Grammar/Speller work ok with language selected.
Yes. I have one more suggestion.
Your using the US version of Word.
You have uninstalled Word and Re-installed.
You didn't delete any .dll or .lex files.
And your having no other errors except this reoccuring symptom.
This may seem a unusual but try doing the following:
Open Control Panel.
Double click Regional Settings.
See that English [United States] is selected.
If it's not, this could be the cause.
Thank you for your quick reply.
And yes i did check the CP/setting language and k/board...just in cas.
I did dis-install and re-install, deleting whatever the uninistall delete or remove. I even copy (or re-copy) proof folder that exist on the cd to the msoffice directory. And still it shows thesaurus with british settings?? This is a real tough one and Billy is not helping us.
