I need the dictionary for the spell checker for another program. Where can I find it?

as in you want to integrate that dictionary into another program - or do you just want to look up words and thesaurus and stuff?

If the latter, id suggest just using an online dictionary/thesaurus, like m-w.com (merriam-webster site)

I think they are stored in *.DIC files for Office. Easiest way would probably to get the dictionaries from a open-source project like Openoffice.org or something like that.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
