Hi,

Currently using excel 2013. Is it possible to spell check one excel doc/workbook using another excel doc/workbook as a source/dictionary upon which the second doc can be made to match?

Excel uses the same dictionary as Word, so if you can setup a custom dictionary in Word that points to your other workbook sheet it might work.

I also found this on the web and while this seems to be a way to add to your existing custom dictionary, I don't see why you couldn't copy the custom dictionary and replace its innards with the words you want.

In Windows or the Finder navigate to your Custom Dictionary file.
Open it with a texteditor. I used BBEdit for Mac. ...
Paste in your word list here, with a single word on each line.
Save this file. Keep the .dic extension.
