I have already searched this database and cannot find what I need.  I have Office 97, small business edition, bought from Dell with the computer, running Win 98.  I want Word to spell and grammer check for spanish.  I've tried highlighted some text, selected set language from tools (there are many versions of spanish listed) and setting to international sort, traditional, and Mexican.  When I go to check the same selected text, I get "cannot find grammer file msgrES32.dll and cannot find dictionary mssp2_ES.lex".  I tried reinstalling Word from the disk Dell supplied with the computer, but it showed everything was already installed.  Didn't see an option for languages anyway.  Searched the microsoft site, couldn't find where or how to get these files.  Apparently Dell's version doesn't have Spanish installed?  How to I get the files or enable word to check Spanish?  Thanks for reading all this and for your help.

hi bruintje:
1. thanks for your comment.  I tried the web page you suggested.  so far it has not worked because I don't have Win 2000.  I emailed the page owner to ask how to install on win 97.  If I hear back, and it works, I'll certainly accept your comment as the answer.  Until then, I'd like to leave it open in case somebody has another suggestion.
2. sorry about posting the question twice. How do I delete?  I tried edit, then erasing everything, but that didn't work.  Don't see any "delete" option.  Thanks

The files I downloaded from the web site worked fine, just had a little trouble getting them installed. Thanks very much.
ps. still can't get my duplicate question deleted.  It says I cannot decrease the point value when I tried to go to zero points.  No big deal, but I'd like to get it fixed if you know how.
Thanks again, Rich
