Default Custom dictionary

I tried to add a word to the custom dictionary but it says it's full
(strange, after all I didn't add more than 30 so far). I created a new custom
dictionary following Office Help, then selected it. Again, I tried to add the
word to the new custom dictionary but it didn't work.

Can anyone help? Thank you so much...

Thank you for your hint Suzanne. I tried both ways stated in your link,
create a new custom dictionary and reinstall the spelling file. Unfortunately
I still have the same error message: "The custom dictionary is full. The word
was not added."

Any other suggestiong before uninstalling office 2003 and reinstall it?
Thank you so so much,
Ian

I too am having trouble with the custom dictionary and I followed explicitly
the directions given in the knowlede base for custom dictionary full message,
but it seems to fail again. However, I note in my case the trigger seems to
be the addition of a highlighted error jw, where w is the Greek symbol omega.
After that attempt to add the word to the dictionary, it all fell apart.

My understanding is that custim.dic could handle all languages, but if it
can be opened and read with notepad, how can it accommodate non-english
characters?

You also would be well advised to post in
microsoft.word.public.spelling.grammar (but first make sure that the
language of your Custom.dic is set to "All Languages").

Well, if you were using a newsreader to post directly to msnews (see
http://www.gmayor.com/MSNews.htm), you would find it easily, but if you must
post through Communities, use the
http://www.microsoft.com/communities...s/default.aspx
portal, which lists all the newsgroups (not just the English ones as the URL
implies) alphabetically, or the
http://www.microsoft.com/communities...s/default.aspx site,
which lists them hierarchically by language.
