Default Where does word 2003 store list of words 'ignored' during spell ch

Hello All,

Can anybody explain word 2003's mechanism to store words which I choose to
'ignore' during spell check? I followed the following steps several times
1. Open a new word document and type a 'missspelled' word.
2. Right click the word and select 'Ignore All'. (Automatic spell check is on)
3. Close document WITHOUT saving.
4. Close all other instances of word if any are running.
5. Start word.
6. Enter the same 'missspelled' word which was entered in step 2.

RESULT: The word is NOT red-underlined. That means the word gets saved
somewhere even if the document which contains the word is not saved.

BUT this behaviour is not consistently same on all machines. On some
machines it happens that Ignore All option works only as long as some
instance of word is running. After all instances of word are closed and you
reopen word 2003 the same word (which was previously ignored) is
red-underlined.

Can anybody explain whether this happens due to some file/folder permissions
or is it a difference of 2003 editions or what?

Thanks in advance

It is stored in the temporary files that are held open while Word is open.
If you close Word completely the information is erased, however closing Word
directly will not close Word completely if Outlook is open and Word has been
used as an e-mail editor (press CTRL+ALT+DEL and see the running processes).
If you want the word to remain ignored, you need to create an exclude
dictionary and add the Word. This is explained in Word help.

Thanks a lot for your prompt reply.
I tried the same sequence after closing outlook, and word did flag the
previously ignored word with a red underline.
