    Batch Spell Check Word Docs? (Word 2000)

    Does anyone know of a program that will spell check a batch of MS Word Documents?

    I don't, but are you looking for something like Word's interactive spell check which prompts you to make corrections, or... what would a batch spell checker do?

    This product claims to offer such a feature: http://www.afterscan.com/.

    I have not tried it and cannot vouch for it.

    Thanks for your reply. A batch program would take a group of documents (MS Word documents is what I am looking for ) and spell check them, showing suspect words and allowing me to change or accept them, rather than opening each document one at a time, checking it, and then going on to the next. There are programs, such as MicroSpell, that can do it with text, xml, html, etc. type files. But I haven't found one that can handle MS Word files.

    This looks like it should do what you're looking for, and using Word's own spellchecker (haven't used or tested this): MultiMacro which can be found at http://www.editorium.com. (If you're a do-it-yourself-er and not averse to playing with VBA, you can probably find similar code that could be adapted, by searching the Word and/or VBA forums here.)
