misspelled words in Excel - is there a way to get red line underneath like Word?

hi Folks
I know I can run a spellcheck etc in Excel but how do I set it up so that misspelled words are underlined in red (like Word) or is that possible in Excel...

Excel is not a Word Processing application so is therefore not setup with such a function. If this was enabled, any string of letters used as a reference for something but not recognised as a word in the dictionary would be underlined.

Thanks

So the answer is...no, it doesn't do the squiggly underline thingy..but you can run a spellcheck on your text entries....

What about simply selecting 'Spelling' from the Review tab? It doesn't do the underlining but it does spellcheck.
