Hi

I am trying to enable spellchecking in a protected word document containing forms. I am at the stage where i know that a macro is necessary to do this. I have tried a macro which i downloaded but when i try to compile it i am getting an error.

Does anyone have a macro that works or an alternative solution to this? Also i would like to extend this as far as being able to edit(bold, italicise etc) text within the protected form as well but the former question is definitely priority!

Thanks for your help!

No formatting in protected forms.

What macro did you try that didn't work?
Can we use it as a starting point?

This isn't working for me at all. Are there any other fixes or macro codes for this?
Thanks

Can I get your file? Perhaps there's something about your file...

Or tell me what is not working?
It's not spell checking?
A REALLY common problem is to find that the language isn't set.
Unprotect.
Select all (ctrl+A)
Tools-Language-Set language
Make sure none of it is set to "no proofing"

Sorry. That can't be your file? Did you give the wrong link?
I need to know what line the "method or data member not found" occurs on (after you get this message, hit debug and tell me what line is yellowed).
What language are you using?

Hi Jen,
Well, i didn't use macros cos they are a nightmare. Basically i inserted page breaks around the areas that i wanted the user to spellcheck and then portected only certain sections of the document. hope this helps. it was an ideal solution for my problem but may not suit you!
