Word 2010: [backstage or file tab], [options], [proofing] go to third gray box down and configure with [check boxes] under ["When correcting spelling and grammar in Word"]
Apache Open Office:  [tools tab] [option] [language settings] [wirting aids] check boxes for spelling and grammar.

I am not sure about global setting but of course this takes care of the current document.  Also I might add that in trying to create a grammar problem in apache open office I could not force a grammar check with it checked on.

One would imagine there is a way to skip or change dictionaries for different parts of a document yes??
Some kind of skip this table cell for example would be a nice way to  handle things and give some control back or is it only possibl to remove markings after disabling spell check period????

In Word you can go to exceptions  below spelling and grammar and apply by document...

That is a good question.  This is the way it was taught to me.  Use the [auto correct] dialog box for more granularity for specific input ie "A cell or a  table"  I you are continuously  getting flag you can use the replace with option or you can also halt some automatic [auto correct] functions like caps or don't cap after Also see the [Exception..] button.
[Auto-correct] is in the same group in options
