Spell checking an unbound form in MS Access 2013
Posted on 2016-11-01
I am trying to get the MS Office spell checker to work within a couple of my forms. I can open the linked table and select spell checker manually but I cannot get it to work on the form. If I try to select spell checker while the form is open it is greyed out on the ribbon. I have tried to use the attached code in the before update, after update, and unload events of the form. I am at a loss and cannot find any help numerous forums. Just getting the situations in which spell checker will work on a form would be helpful. I always get this error when using the code in any of the above mentioned events: Run-time error '2046' The command or action 'Spelling' isn't available now.
I am about to pull my hair out so any help would be appreciated
