I have use OO for some time and always found it easy. Much better than some others.

However something happened to the spell check. I checked to make sure it is set "on" but when I start spell check it goes to the prompt "spell check complete" without having done ANYTHING.

I uninstalled and reinstalled OO but this did not fix the problem.

I do have work due tomorrow.

Try Tutorial Spell check and Language configuration. If that (and the troubleshooter linked to in it) doesn't help please provide more detail.
If your problem has been solved, please edit the first post in this thread and add [Solved] to the title bar.

Seems strange, after reading forever on troubleshooting a simple idea occurred to me:
try opening a new OO writer doc. (because I un/ reinstalled OO.)
-the spell check worked, then I retried opening my old document, spell check still no go.

-solution, cut and paste- discard old file.

way to easy

Hi,

Without seeing your document I only can guess, so maybe I'm totally wrong.
Have you checked the Language settings in your old document with the default language in Tools --> Options ... Languages Settings ...Language Local setting
and Tools --> Options ... Languages Settings ... Language ... Default language for documents?
Also try Tools --> Language .. For all text and check that the language packages are downloaded.
