    Spell check does not work MS woord
    No matter what I do, the spell check does not work with this one perticuler document;
    If I open a new document and start typing, it does work...

    I am trying to find out what's so special or not so special about this document that the speel check refuse to work. I even go in and make mistake and run the spell check, the darn thing comes back with spell check
    Complete... What gives?

    Thanks

    Check the paragraph formatting. You can turn off spell checking in the paragraph style.

    Its kind of buried. What version of Word do you have? Its under the Language formatting. For Word 2003, select Format form the menu and select Reveal Formatting (or press Shift+F1). A pane opens showing the various formatting categories. Under Font click on Language. This opens a dialog box that has a check box labeled "Do Not check speliing or grammar".

    If that's not it, I'm not sure what else it could be. Try saving the doc as plain text the opeing it back as a doc file.

    Yes, that's what I was trying to do, lose the formatting.
