    Macro to spellcheck protected form in Mac Word98

    Hi,

    I'm a freelance art director, working in the Boston, MA area. I've created a bunch of Mac Word 98 forms for an ad agency in town. But I didn't realize that you can't spellcheck protected forms. Which is a problem. In researching the problem, I got as far as this message board and this macro code at
    <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.mvps.org/word/FAQs/MacrosVBA/SpellcheckProtectDoc.htm>http://www.mvps.org/word/FAQs/MacrosVBA/Sp...kProtectDoc.htm</A>


    But when I try to follow the instructions I get a syntax error message on the second line of code: Sub RunSpellcheck(). I'm wondering if this is PC code rather than Mac code? Or maybe it's code for Word
    2000 rather than 98?

    Does anyone have hints on creating this macro on the Mac for Word98?

    Thanks in advance!

    jt
