Auto Spell check within a Form

When I create database I remove all but the core menu items which removes the capability to run a spell check from the menu.  I did the research and found on this site in the following post a partial answer to my problem of adding the capability at the form level via a button or auto.


I have used the following code;

Private Sub YourTextField_AfterUpdate()
'If the textbox contains data run the Spell Checker after data is entered.
    If Len(Me!YourTextField & "") > 0 Then
        DoCmd.RunCommand acCmdSpelling
        Exit Sub
    End If
End Sub

But this is where the problem arises, the above code works fine but the minute it corrects the last word in the field you are on it automatically goes on to the next record and starts checking that one.  I am trying to figure out how to prevent it from continuing on to the next record and instead stop right there and allow you close the spell checker window or close auto after last correction in a field.
