Anyone know which file name the dictionary is kept under in Word 97? Not the user custom dictionary. What format is it saved as? Any way to read it?

The Main Dictionary is found in C:\program Files\common files\microsoft shared\proof  
The file name I beleive is the msdws_en.lex

There is no way that I know of being able to read it...the only readable and customizable dictionary file is the Custom.dic file.

Hopefully this answers your question.

I really dont think that you will be able to read the main dictionary...and so my above answer still stands...

"Anyone know which file name the dictionary is kept under in Word 97?" Answer:  The Main Dictionary is found in C:\program Files\common files\microsoft shared\proof  

"Any way to read it?" Answer: NO...
