You can add as many custom dictionaries as you want, but they have to follow this format: 1. The file has to be a straight ASCII file (not a Word .doc or .docx). 2. The file has to have the extension .dic 3. Each word has to be on a line by itself. 4. The words have to be in alphabetical order (I'm not sure what happens if they're not. Word MIGHT sort them for you.) Note that upper case letters are "lower than" lower case letters. 5. I think that lower case letters also match words in documents with upper case letters, but the reverse may not be true. That is, letters in upper case on the dictionary may match only upper case letters in documents. 6. The file should be in this directory: In Windows XP: C:\Documents and Settings\your username\Application Data\Microsoft\Proof In Windows Vista: C:\Users\your username\ AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\UProof Hope that helps.

Microsoft Word is not free but there is a free alternative. Try Open Office, a free alternative to Microsoft Office and is completely compatible with Office programs. The program Writer included in Open Office is just like Microsoft Word. OpenOffice.org is a multiplatform and multilingual office suite and an open-source project. Compatible with all other major office suites, the product is free to download, use, and distribute.

You could download the new Office Suite from Microsoft but its only a trial, will ask you to buy after 60 days.

This should work but it has been a long time since I last did it. Click on the Office Button and then click on Word Options then click on Proofing then Custom Dictionaries. Click on New and create a new custom dictionary giving it a name that is appropriate. Try to keep it a 1 word name. Save the file where it is convenient for you. Once created, quit Word. Open Windows Explorer and find the file that you just created as a custom dictionary. Double click the file and it should open in Notepad. Enter the words that you have for the dictionary or paste them in from whatever source that you have. There must be only 1 word per line. Save the file. It must be a plain text file with the .dic extension. Notepad should save this properly but check just to make sure. Start Word and your new dictionary should be available to you.

Sorry to say you have to purchase Microsoft Word 2003 in addition to your new computer. Microsoft has a way of squeezing all the money they can from you.
