I was trying to help a user with his word 2007 and he mentioned that his spell check is not working.

I checked the proofing area to see that check spelling as you type was checked and I also checked to see if spell check was disabled in addins.

Not sure what to do?

Hi mutec1,

Did you check the language settings of his 'style' to ensure that it has proofing enabled?

Also in Word -> Options -> Proofing, check the Advanced Options as well as the setting you verified in the original post.

If no joy, use Office Diagnotics and do a Repair.
