I need to spellcheck a field in ms/access. I have browsed for a solution which I found using the docmd.
But I need to specify the language (Portuguese from Portugal)
How do I do it?

The spell check engine uses the language setup in Access, which is the language setup in Windows (by default). You can change that language, and then run the spell check.

I believe you can write that option using SetOption:

Application.SetOption "Dictionary Language", "Your Language"

I'm not sure exactly which language you'd use for the second argument. I'm also not sure if this option will "stick" without having to restart the database.

Try "Spelling dictionary language" instead of "Dictionary Language"

nope...

please check the screenshots below.

The code is within the "boot" section of the application so I think that there will be no problem on the need to reboot access...

You need to use the Language constant, which I believe would be msoLanguageIDPortuguese:
