Setting Excel Spell-Checking Options
Word includes a spelling checker that you can use to proof the text in your worksheets. There are a few options that you can set for the spelling checker. For instance, you can make sure the spelling checker doesn’t check words that are all uppercase or those that have numbers in the word.
To change the spelling checker options, follow these steps:
1. Display the Excel Options dialog box. (In Excel 2007 click the Office button and then click Excel Options. In Excel 2010 display the File tab of the ribbon and then click Options.)
2. At the left side of the dialog box click Proofing. (See Figure 1.)
