    Spell Check Form (Word 2003)

    I received a document which is a form I need to fill out. It has Text form field in it and it is protected form. It doesn't seem like I can spell check or do formatting on the document... Is there a way of doing that?? I don't know the password to unprotect the form. Thanks......

    All of the spell check macros I have seen (and you can find links to them with a search here) seem to involve unprotecting the form. Any workaround that comes to mind (such as copying all the field results into a new document and spell-checking it there; or saving as RTF to flush the password and then opening, unprotecting, and spell-checking that copy) seems to be more work that it's worth! I guess that judgment depends on how important it is to have everything spelled correctly in this form.
