HELP PLEASE - Word only spell checking PART of a document?????????

Post by Robin Jack » Thu, 28 Apr 2005 03:22:56


Hi

Can anyone help please urgently?

My daughter is trying to finish some important University course work and
one of her main documents will not spell check.

The first 8-9 pages spell check fine and the little red squiggly under the
incorrect word but after that for the whole document NOTHING and there are
loads of spelling errors?

She is on Word from Office X.

I have also tried the same document in Office 2004 with exactly the same
results!!!!!!!!!!!

When she has copied and pasted the text from this document to another it
still has the same problem?????

PLEASE can anyone help???????

Robin

As a further data point I have now copied the file into my VPC environment
and using Office 2003 on Windows XP this document is showing EXACTLY the
same problem???????

It is a short document but of a highly scientific nature so lots of
'supposed' errors.

Is there a defined limit to the number of errors Word can show!!!!!!!!

Cheers.

Robin

Hi Beth

Both my daughter and I send a HUGE thank you for such a speedy answer.

This is part of her dissertation and I was at a total loss.

Somehow she had selected a non language part way through the document (I did
not even know you had to select a language??????).

Again many, many, MANY thanks.

Regards.

Robin
