Fix OpenOffice Spell Check

Start writer -> tools -> options -> Language Settings -> Languages -> Default languages for documents -> western -> pick either English (UK) or English (USA) -> OK -> restart openoffice.

Note: The dictionary needs to have “ABC” next to it. NZ did not!

Also: In the word processor, go to Tools>Options>Language Settings>Writing Aids and check that the Hunspell SpellChecker is ticked, otherwise when you run the spell checker it will not pick up any mistakes.
