maybe i'm the last guy to use microsoft word 97, but...

at some point, the word 97 spell & grammar check, along with the thesaurus [all under tools] is gone. spelling and grammar are grayed out under tools >> options.

i uninstalled word 97. then reinstalled it. but the problem hasnt been resolved. any suggestions???

I haven't used it in years, so I can't really help you. You could look through the documentation, maybe you'll find something in there.

There are a few free alternatives though. Libreoffice, or Google docs for example. Or you can try out Latex for more professional documents.

A built in thesaurus might be nice, but I don't see a point to it over an online thesaurus.

It makes sense to have a built in spell check because a spelling error might go unknoticed. The same can't be said about a thesaurus though, since you'll need to use it actively.

If the thesaurus doesn't work with some old software, don't waist your time on on. Just use an online one.
