Chapter 2. Basic Workbook Skills > Checking Your Spelling

Checking Your Spelling

A worksheet's textual inaccuracies can distract the reader, so it's important that your text be error-free. Excel provides a spelling checker so that you can check the spelling in an entire worksheet. You can even avoid future spelling errors on a worksheet by enabling the AutoCorrect feature to automatically correct words as you type.

Check Spelling

Click the Spelling button on the Standard toolbar.

The Spelling dialog box will open if it comes upon a word it doesn't recognize.

If the suggested spelling is unacceptable or you want to use the original word, click Ignore Once or Ignore All.

If the suggested spelling is acceptable, click Change or Change All.

If you want to add a word to the custom dictionary, click Add To Dictionary.

When complete, click OK.
