Hi all,
I use the Microsoft Proofing tools spellchecker (Word 2003) and by mistake I have added a word that is incorrect to the dictionary. Could someone kindly tell me if there is a way of viewing the words I have added myself to the dictionary and how can I delete the incorrect word?

Deleting a word Mar 1, 2007

My MSWord is in English. Go to "Tools", "Options", click on the "Spelling&Grammar" tab, click on "Custom Dictionaries" button then on "Modify". Look for the word you entered and delete it. Good luck.

This is a text file with one word per line. You can edit it using the Windows Notepad or even MS Word (you have to save it as a text file if you edit it in Word).

It is useful to go through the custom.dic file on foot, so to speak, and weed out any other words you may have add
