My company has Word templates for the reports we have to submit, and one of them is a real pain because spellcheck won't work in it. Naturally its the longest (9 pages) and most detailed one.
Someone created it from a letterhead document in which spellcheck was not enabled for the blank portion of the page or something like that. I checked every option I could find, and checked the spellcheck option but noting makes a difference. I am not a Word expert nor do I know how to make templates, so my knowledge of how to correct it is very limited.

What happens if I click on check spelling, it says something like "spelling and grammar check completed. Text marked "do not check spelling and grammar was skipped".

I have repeatedly asked the people in my office to fix it or provide a new one, but so far nothing.

Is there any to change the "text marked do not check spelling and grammar" so that it will check it?

I get so frustrated everytime I have to use that template - I really rely on spellcheck because I am not the greatest typist.

I have Word 2002 on my computer, the version that came with Works 2002, but I previously was using Word 2000 from the Office 2000 Pro. My company is still using Office 97, if that makes a difference.

If anyone can tell me now to correct this template, I would be eternally grateful - and my blood pressure will stay down :confused:

Hey Suzi,
This works on normal documents - it should also work on a template.

Select all (Ctrl + A) on an un-filled template and then go to:
Tools, Language, Set Language
Uncheck the box that says "Do not check spelling or grammar".
Re-save and see if it works.
