    Spell Checking (2003 sp2)

    When Real Estate property is inspected and reviewed a memo field on a form is used for comments. How can I invoke the spell checker in the BeforeUpdate event of the memo field?
    Thanks

    You really can't. Access automatically saves the current record when you invoke the Spell Checker.

    You can't invoke the spelling checker in the Before Update event of a text box. You could do so in the After Update event:

    Private Sub txtComment_AfterUpdate()
    RunCommand acCmdSpelling
    End Sub

    Thank you gentleman. I will get these events right one of these days. It works fine in the AfterUpdate event.
