How does one spell check a specific page in Word (Office 365?)

I tried highlighting the page but when I click Review -->Check Document the Editor window opens and tells me how many spelling and grammar corrections exist for the entire document.  The document is 145 pages long but I only want to spell check the last page.  I was expecting a dialogue box to appear saying if any errors were found and asking if I want to check the rest of the document.  I recently upgraded from Windows 7 to 10 and Office 2007 to Office 365 so am guessing something changed in the spell check function since Office 2007.

For Office 2010/2013/2016 it is a bit different from 2007.
You can select the text you do not want to proof check, go to the "Review" riboon > Language > Set Proofing Language > tick the checkbox "Do not check spelling or grammar".
This will make the text that was selected no be checked for errors.
You can do the inverse if you would like just a section to be checked for errors. Select the whole document with Ctrl + A and set to no check for errors and only on the part that you would like to be checked you uncheck the checkbox.

Here's another option: Add this button to your quick access toolbar at the top left of your screen:
1. Click the dropdown arrow to customize the quick access toolbar
2. Click More Commands
3. From the top box, choose Commands not in the ribbon
4. scroll down and choose Spelling....
5. Click to add to QAT
This option is more like the old spell check. It will only check the selection and then ask if you want to check more

Karen, this is the feature I want but its not working.  I added Spelling & Grammar to the Quick Access Toolbar, highlight the text I want to spell check, but it still checks the entire document based on what appears in the Editor window.  I saved the document, closed and reopened, but no change.  I'm not getting a dialogue box confirming it checked anything or asking if I want to check the entire document.  What should I try next?

Paul, the only options that appear in my Proofing group are "abc Check Document", Thesaurus, and Word Count.  I don't have an option for Spelling & Grammar so added it to the Quick Access Toolbar.  It still checks the entire document instead of the highlighted text.  What should I try next?

Karen, please disregard my previous comments.  I initially added Spelling & Grammar to my Quick Access Toolbar but when I changed it to "Spelling..." as you stated it worked.  I really appreciate your step-by-step advice as I would not have figured this out on my own.

Paul, please see my comments to Karen above.  Thank you for taking the time to respond.

Danilo, your proposed solution was not what I was seeking (please see my comments to Karen) but thank you for responding.
