When I select Tools>Grammar Check in SDLX Edit menu, I get the following error message:

Grammar check: Error automating MS Word

I tried to uninstall/reinstall the software, but it still doesn't work...

Note: I am using Word 2000 on a Windows XP OS.

Word started already? Apr 7, 2009


I think Word needs to be started before using this feature.
Try starting Word first.

Of course... Apr 7, 2009

I already tried that and got the same message. Thanks anyway...

I don't know where the problem comes from; the spell checking works perfectly and according to my settings it is performed by MS Word.

Same problem here... May 25, 2014

I just met exactly the same problem.

"Check spelling" is working, but "Check grammar" gives me that message.

I'm using Word 2010. (But I just disinstalled a trial version of office 365 from my computer).

Is there anything I can do?

Thanks a lot!
