I have been trying for days. I have Stedman's on my computer, I have gone to

"options" in Word and checked it as a custom dictionary, but it will not

work. How can I get this dictionary to work in Word?

      I am not familar with the Stedmans dictionary. Does the product state that

      it can be integrated with MS Office (Word). Is the dictionary file in a doc

      or dic format?

      If it is not in a format that word recognizes then there will be no joy.

      Some dictionary, grammer, theasaurus products run as an external program

      that have the capability of opening word formatted files.

      From Stedman's website

      Is Stedman's Plus Spellchecker 2007 compatible with Microsoft Office

      2007?

      We are currently working with Microsoft to develop compatibility with

      Microsoft Office 2007/Word 2007. Please send an e-mail to stedmans.ms-word.todaysummary.com.lww.com

      with the subject line of “Office 2007” with your name, e-mail address, and

      mailing address, and we will notify you as additional information becomes

      available.

      I took a quick look at the Stedman's user manual, it appears that this

      program is an integrated add-in. If think that some addins won't work if your

      Office macro settings are set to High.

      Stedman's recommends the following:

      Is It Really Working?

      You can use the words “Dutoprol” and “sitagliptin” to make sure Stedman’s

      Plus, 2007 has been installed properly. Simply type “Dutaprol” and

      “sitabliptin” (incorrect versions of the above words) and spellcheck your

      document. Your spellchecker should highlight these words and will suggest

      the correct words “Dutoprol” and “sitagliptin” from the Stedman’s Plus, 2007
