    Word will normally spell check footnotes too. See if
    - The Footnote Text style has been redefined with "Do not check spelling or grammar".
    - The text in the footnotes has been set to "Do not check spelling or grammar" (in Tools | Language | Set Language...)

    Hans - full marks for a quick response!
    What do you mean by the first point:
    "- The Footnote Text style has been redefined with "Do not check spelling or grammar"."?
    Not sure how this can happen
    Thanks again

    You can set selected text to "Do not check spelling or grammar". If a style has been set to Automatically Update (in the Modify Style dialog), manual formatting will redefine the style.
    You can check if the Footnote Text style has been set not to check spelling by looking at the definition of the style in the Modify Style dialog. You can change the setting by selecting Format | Language in this dialog.
