How can I get my Stedman's Medical Dictionary to work in Word?
I have been trying for days. I have Stedman's on my computer, I have gone to
"options" in Word and checked it as a custom dictionary, but it will not
work. How can I get this dictionary to work in Word?

I am not familar with the Stedmans dictionary. Does the product state that
it can be integrated with MS Office (Word). Is the dictionary file in a doc

If it is not in a format that word recognizes then there will be no joy.
Some dictionary, grammer, theasaurus products run as an external program

Is It Really Working?
You can use the words “Dutoprol” and “sitagliptin” to make sure Stedman’s
Plus, 2007 has been installed properly. Simply type “Dutaprol” and
“sitabliptin” (incorrect versions of the above words) and spellcheck your
document. Your spellchecker should highlight these words and will suggest
the correct words “Dutoprol” and “sitagliptin” from the Stedman’s Plus, 2007
