Spell and Grammar checking settings apply to a document range, so you can select all of the document and set the desired options. This will not affect other documents.

do you mean to make sure spelling check against specific language(s)? or what's your ultimate goal behind this requirement?

Thank you for your reply. For example, if i type some words wrong, the Word will underline the wrong words with red line, but in some certain Word file, I need to type many words that the Word cannot recognize. In this way, Word will give a lot underlined red line, it is a mess in the file. If I do not want to close the function for all Word file, I just want to close the function for some certain Word file.
You can also select the text in the file with Ctrl-A and turn off the spelling checking for the selection.

You might be able to create a style with no spelling correction
>>If I do not want to close the function for all Word file, I just want to close the function for some certain Word file.

You can deactivate the spell check for only the file your working on when it is open. Select ALL or PART of the document, double click on the Language function at the bottom of the window, check the Do not check spelling or grammar button and click on OK. Now save the document and close it.

When you close and re-open the document in question, Word remembers the setting.

Alternatively: Review tab ―> Language group ―> Language option ―> Language Preferences will take you to the same panel!

As I mentioned in my answer above (ID: 41385050), this setting affects the OPEN FILE ONLY...

 Have you tried it?
