Grammar checker inoperative

Post by carloar » Thu, 02 Oct 2003 06:07:34

Hi Fred

Try a few things.

1. Under Tools -> Language -> Set language, make sure the text is marked as English and "Do not check spelling or grammar" is

2. Under Tools -> Options -> Spelling and grammar, "Check grammar as you type" and "Check grammar with Spelling" should both be
CHECKED, and "Hide grammatical errors in this document" should be UNCHECKED.

3. Finally the grammar checkers offer a high degree of customization so make sure the options you care about are on. Go to Tools ->
Options -> Spelling and grammar -> Writing Style -> Settings, and check everything you care about. "Grammar and Style" has most things

4. Then try a sentence like "This are a test". This sentence is definitely caught by the grammar checker.

Let me know if this helps!

2. Spellchecker and Grammar Checker

I have created a form that allows my user to type in a
text box and run a spell-check and grammar check using
WORD. My problem is that it opens a word document after
running the spell-check and grammar check. I would really
like it to not open the word document at all but I have
been unsuccessful in getting it to programmatically close
the word document. I would appreciate any advice.

'The following code runs a spell check and grammar check

Private Sub cmdSpellCheck_Click()

Dim oWDBasic As Object
Dim sTmpString As String

Set oWDBasic = CreateObject("Word.Basic")
oWDBasic.Insert txtFreeForm.Text
On Error Resume Next
oWDBasic.SetDocumentVar "MyVar", WDBasic.Selection
sTmpString = oWDBasic.GetDocumentVar("MyVar")
'The following code will NOT close WORD
'DoCmd.Close acModule, "word.basic", acSaveNo
'DoCmd.Close , "word.basic", acSaveNo
'DoCmd.Close , oWDBasic, acSaveNo
txtFreeForm.Text = Left(sTmpString,Len(sTmpString) - 1)
MsgBox "The spell check and grammar check are complete"

End Sub

Private Sub cmdOk_Click()

gstrFreeForm = txtFreeForm.Text
If IsNull(txtFreeForm) Then
MsgBox "You must type something in the text box"
End If

End Sub
