Documents spell checker

Hello Experts

Documents are not affected by the spell checker in outlook and word 2010,
a word document that was recently opened at another computer,
and tried to opened on a second computer wasn't affected by the spell checker,
bypass solution was to copy the content to notepad and then copy it again to word.

do you know way it's happening ?

Your question is a bit unclear. Do you mean that the document is not being checked by the spell check until you have copied it through Notepad? If that is the case, the original content probably was set to "Do not check spelling or grammar". To fix it, select everything (Ctrl-A) and then open the Language dialog (Review > Language). Select the language you want to use, and turn off the "Do not check" setting.

You can manage more of the spelling and grammar settings from the File > Options dialog: the Proofing section has settings for spelling and grammar; the Language section lets you make changes to what languages are available.

No problem; glad it worked for you. Language is one of several "invisible" attributes in Word documents, so their effect can be hard to notice. You can also use Shift-F1 to being up the Reveal Formatting pane, which shows all formatting for the current selection -- including the Language in effect.
