I have uninstalled and installed again the Office 2000, and since then the spelling is being done in Brazilian Portuguese and not the European Portuguese, although I select Portuguese (Portugal) and in the lower bar it is also mentioned this language. If I go to Tools, Language, Set Language it is also selected the Portuguese (Portugal) and it has a tick sign. I have installed previously the Brazilian Portuguese from the Proofing Tools, but that shouldn't be a problem, once that before everything was working fine and the Office had been installed from the same CD. Does anyone know how to solve this?

Thanks
