How to disable Word auto-spell-checker from Visual Basic

Hi.

I have a Visual Basic 6 application which uses automation to generate a Word document.
Currently application is throwing an error because a word popup message appears saying there are too many mispelling words, so my question is: is it possible to disable the automatic spell-checker to avoid this problem?

It should work on all Microsoft Word versions (from Microsoft Word XP to Microsoft Word 2013).

Thank you.
