One of my network users creates numerous documents with text boxes and/or columns. The user cannot seem to get the spell checker or autocorrect in either of these two instances. Is there a setting in word that will enable spell checking and auto correction in text boxes and columns?

In word, have a look at tools/options/spelling and grammer. Have you got the settings correct in there?

1. Tell Him/Her not to paste text boxes into word.  Why would you want them in there ?  I do hope they are not using word as a html editor. tut tut tut.

2. Read this :
http://www.vbdotnetheaven.com/UploadFile/scottlysle/VBspellcheckCC06162007043324AM/VBspellcheckCC.aspx
It covered using words spellcheck outside the program in VB.  You could use the same idea in a macro to do something like this on highlighted text (maybe)

This is the CEO's assistant and uses Word to create the Company News Letter. She's not comfortable with Publisher.

Well we tried the changing the setting on language and it keeps defaulting back to "do not check this section" so I am presuming the previous assistant created some specific settings in the form. We can close this question.
