Hi, Jaffer's code (enclosed) is very helpful and generally works well however sometimes the Word Spell check window remains underneath the working window and the PC is virtually 'locked' waiting for an input to the spell window. ALT TAB can bring the spell window to the top, however can u supply a little additional code to the function or whatever to bring the spell check code to the foreground.
Got your email,
What reminded you of me, it must be my comments to your new Sentence Case question ;o)
Lets take care of your Spell check:
make a new module, call it SpellingCheck
Paste the following code in the module
Dim X As Object
Set X = CreateObject("Word.Application")
X.Visible = False
X.Selection.Text = CheckWhat.Text
CheckWhat.Text = X.Selection.Text
Set X = Nothing
Save the module.
In any Form, I will take WeekendScheduling SubForm as an example,
and will use the Field Housekeeping,
In Design view, Right click on Housekeeping and select properties,
go to On Lost Focus and paste the following there,
Save your Form.
Now, everytime you finish writing something in HouseKeeping field, the spell checker will check your spelling and will give you options for corrections.
For any Form/Field you want to spell check, on the Lost Focus of the field, paste
please change YourFieldName to the name of the field where you want to do the spell check,
in my example above,
YourFieldName was replaced with HouseKeeping
hope thi helps,
