How can I fix the MS Word Mac Office 2008 UK Spelling Dictionary

Can anyone tell me how to get the  the Microsoft Mac Office 2008 UK dictionary to exclude American spellings such as analyze which should be analyse in UK English.

I've correctly set my International settings to British English and I have set Language to English UK both under the MS Word Tools menu and in Spelling and Grammar prefs.

It seems that this is a fairly widely reported bug but is there any fix or way around it?

Thanks.

I've decided to close this question as I've now discovered that this problem is caused by a bug in the software for which there appears to be no real fix and I have found my own workaround using Tools:Autocorrect.

Have a look at the following:

You can type exclude dictionary or exclusion dictionary in the Office help to get more information

Good Luck!

tbsgadi... Thanks for your post. Unfortunately this only refers to Windows products. The Mac version does not seem to have an exclude dictionary file as described in the blog referred to by the link above.
