Checking Spelling

1Open the Tools menu and choose Spelling to open the Spelling dialog box.

2When Access finds a word that does not appear in its dictionary, the word appears in the Not In Dictionary field, with suggested corrections in the Suggestions area.

3If the word is, in fact, misspelled and the correct spelling is listed, click the correct spelling to select it, and click the Change button to change just this instance of the word.

4To change all instances of the misspelled word, click the correct spelling in the Suggestions list and then click the Change All button.

5If Access incorrectly flags a word as a misspelling, you can opt to ignore the flag. Click Ignore to skip just this instance, or Ignore All to skip all instances.

6If Access incorrectly flags a word as a misspelling, and it's one you use often, click the Add button to add the word to the dictionary that Access uses to check your spelling.

7Access flags the next word not found in its dictionary. Continue making selections for each of the flagged words. Access notifies you when the spell check is complete; click OK.
