Hi guys.

Got an odd problem.

One of our users has Outlook 2013 and cannot turn on the thesaurus. See the attached snapshot.

Any idea why this is greyed out?

    Hi Tracyprier,

    Are you using the same version of Word? See this link

    If yes I would suggest going into Add/Remove programs and running a repair on the office installation.
