Spellcheck does not work

Post by Stev » Sat, 19 Jun 2004 05:28:43

I have Word on several computers and spellcheck will not
work when doing a spellcheck on words mispelled in tables
for some reason.
If I open a blank document with no table it will find the
mispelled words. Any reason why this would be happening?

It is likely that the words not being checked are formatted for no proofing.

Open one of the documents and press Shift-F1. Then click on one of the
misspelled words. Word will display the formatting applied to that Word (and
the source of the formatting).

If it says "no proofing" or "do not check spelling and grammar" you need to
modify the language setting. Select your entire document (Ctrl-A) and use
Tools > Language to change the setting.
