      This sounds like the style used to format the paragraph ("Normal", usually) is set

      to automatically update.

      Use the Format/Style command; as I recall, in Word 2002 this displays the Styles

      and Formatting task pane. Look for the style name you see in the "Styles" list in

      the Formatting toolbar. Right-click that entry in the task pane and choose

      "Modify". Deactivate the checkbox "Automatically update".

      Does it just not give you a result, or do you get some kind

      of message? If a message, please quote the exact text.

      If no result, I'd suspect the text is not formatted with a

      language for which you have a thesaurus. Click in a word

      you want to look up, then go to Tools/Language/Set

      language. Which language is selected? (And what is the

      setting of "Do not check spelling or grammar?)

      No message

      Do not check spelling or grammar was checked.

      Detect language automatically was unchecked.

      The words I had copied from the internet were

      French and German.

      Thank you, Cindy Meister for the refresher course

      on where to go to correct the problem!

      I bold a sentence and the whole page is instantly bold. Why?

      I color phrazes to stand out and the whole page turns that color. Why?

      I have to use ‘ctrl Z’ to correct this action every time I use any of these

      tools.

      Now spell check doesn’t work. Why?

      The Tesaurus is gone again.

      Several times, I have seen windows saying that tesaurus and spelling check

      could not be found or just not respond atall.

      I also can’t get rid of the ‘custom with numbers’ in the tool bar window.

      I can’t remove Option toolbar.

      Word 2002 – I’ve done the check and repair thing.

      I’m dyslexic and there are just too many options. This is bewildering.

      How do I stop Internet Explorer from changing the address icons in my

      favorits column to Explorer icons?
