Default Custom.dic problem

I have a problem with the custom spell checker with Word. I have a Windows XP PC using Word 2002, I copied the custom.dic file from 'path:\Application Data\Microsoft\Proof' and copied it tp a shared drive. On the other PC it is Windows 98 SE and running Word 97. I copied that file into 'program file\ms office\10' some where along that line (did a search and replaced witrh the old custom.dic. I then went into tools->options and check it was using the custom.dic file.

I checked on the 98 PC, but Words still come up as missed spelt. Checked the words against each other and both were Identical. I dont know why it ist finding the words. Is it an issue between the different versions of software?

Thanks Guys.

I dont believe that the 97 version can use files from 2002. Since it is newer program and all the programming changed and all that. I know if you use a 2002 dco and try to open it in 97 it wont work. It is probably the same thing with the dictionary.

The title of the post needs to be in the Tech Forum Hall of Fame.
At $0.02, your analysis is overpriced for its worth.
