    Question Word spellcheck settings

    Here's the deal. Someone is having issues with Word documents where spellchecking the document will come up with some errors, but others are ignored. I know how to change that setting for a single document, but what I want to know is if there is a way to change that setting for every document that is opened in her Word program. Right now if she opens a document she selects all, clicks Review, clicks Set Language, and completely clears the checkbox labeled "Do not check spelling or grammar." Is there a way to make this the default for all documents including ones already created?

    You could create a macro (AutoOpen or Document_Open in Normal.dot/dotm). I don't think there is a safe way to do it with built-in features (e.g., style updating).

    Hi telecomguy9
    Perhaps you could try something like this on Document_Open

    Sub set_language()
    '--------------------------------------------------------
    'set the language to UK English
    '--------------------------------------------------------
    Selection.WholeStory
    Selection.LanguageID = wdEnglishUK
    Application.CheckLanguage = False
    Selection.Collapse (wdCollapseStart)
    End Sub

    Cheers
    G
