Accessing the dictionary and thesaurus libraries. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    Now I may have known there are so many users can use the dictionary lookup dialog in Microsoft Word. 

    Can any user help me where to locate the dictionary or thesaurus class libraries in Word VBA?

    My purpose is to embed the data into either a combo or list box object.

    Any ideas or suggestions on how to perform this task?

  • Hi JohnDBCTX,

    What's the version of your word? What data would you want to get?

    Do you want this in word 2010?

    If so, I think Word object model doesn’t provide any property or method for this.

    If not, please share a screenshot of what data you want so we could try to reproduce your issue.

    Best Regards,
