spell check in design view

In Access 2007 is it possible to use Spell check on form and report labels in design view?  If it is possible, then how do I accomplish this. I know that 2007 has error checking that will cause a flag to come up by a label or control, but I am not seeing a setting for Spell Checking.

I don't think so.  If you hit F7 in design view ... it opens the VBA editor.
