    Spell Check All Caps (Access 2000 and 2003)

    I have an Access database where one of the fields is all capital letters. The spell check seems to ignore misspelled words. This field has almost 5000 lines and many words per line so going through and retyping is out. Is there a way to do a spell check on this field and feel confident that it finds misspelled words even though they are all typed in capital letters?

    Thanks.

    I use Access 2002. In the Spelling tab of Tools | Options..., there is a check box "Ignore words in UPPERCASE". Clearing this check box lets you check words that are all capitals.
