Dear Experts:
I send and receive e-mails in 2 languages. English and German.
Is it possible to write two macros which perform the following tasks:
1. macro:
Setting the dictionary for spellchecking to German (Tools - multi-tabbed Options - Spellchecking-Choose Dictionary for Spellchecking)

2. macro
Setting the dictionary for spellchecking to English (Tools - multi-tabbed Options - Spellchecking-Choose Dictionary for Spellchecking)

Help is much appreciated. Thank you very much in advance.

Regards, Andreas

Hi, AndreasHermle.

Please have a look at this question (http://www.experts-exchange.com/Software/Office_Productivity/Groupware/Outlook/Q_21281725.html) from a few years ago where I showed how to do this.

"I guess it has something to do that I work with Outlook 2003?"
I tested using Outlook 2003 just now and it worked perfectly.  Are the macros running at all?

Hi BlueDevilFan,

I, too work with Outlook 2003. The macros are running, but nothing happes. I guess it has something to do with the fact that I got the german version of Outlook. I am gonna try it on another computer and let you know what happens. Regards, Andreas
