    WordXP's Check Spelling of Form Fields? (XP SP-2)

    Hi,

    I designed a form with WordXP from scratch.
    For some reason the spell checker is skipping all Form Fields & ignoring the errors.

    Is this normal?
    How can I tell the Word Template to ALWAYS check the spelling?

    Thanks,

    m.q.

    Set the language for each field to other than No Proofing which is the default for form fields.

    First point: Click the field, Tools>Language>Set Language..., clear "Do not check spelling or grammar"

    Second point: Spell check is disabled in my sample form when it is protected. Interesting. According to Cindy Meister's FAQ, I'd need to use a macro to check spelling in the protected areas of my document. She points to the Word MVPs site for a good version.
