I have office 97 and have chosen Spanish as the language, but am not given
any corrections or suggestions when I type in Spanish.

What language version of Office 97 do you have? The
English-language version of Office 97 only includes proofing
tools for English. Proofing tools for other languages could be
purchased separately until 2002, but are no longer available from
Microsoft or its licensee Alki Software (see
http://www.yqcomputer.com/ ).

Yes, I have English. Thanks for the information. Our I.S. person couldn't
give me a straight answer and just assumed that it was already installed.

Is there anywhere where I can get an old CD of the proofing tools for office
97?

The Office 97 Proofing Tools CD is a rare find nowadays. The
good(?) news is that you now have an excuse to upgrade to an
English-language version of Office 2003, which includes proofing
tools for English, French, and Spanish without having to purchase
anything extra.
