    Resolution

     

    Customized additions to the spell check dictionary are per user and stored in the user's profile in a file named 'user.dic'. 
    This file is is a standard text file and can be edited with notepad or another standard text editor.

    Procedure:

    1. Locate the file for the user with incorrect data in the dictionary on the client computer at:
        C:\Documents and Settings\User\Application Data\NetSpell\user.dic
        Note - "C:" should reflect the drive where user profiles are stored, usually C:
                    "User" would be replaced with the user profile account
    2. Edit the file with a text editor.
    3. Remove or correct any incorrect entries
        Note: The file can also be deleted and will automatically be recreated when the user adds a word to the dictionary.
    4. Save the edited file.
        The changes should occur and be active for the user immediately.
