Checking the spelling of data
The Spelling feature searches for spelling errors in a table, form, or query. For now, we'll concentrate on checking spelling in a table.
In a table, check the spelling of records, fields, or text within a field.
To check spelling in a table:
- Click the Spelling button. The Spelling dialog box opens.
- Access checks the data until it finds a word that is not in the Dictionary file. The unrecognized word is displayed in the Not in Dictionary text box.
- Manually correct the word, replace it from a list of suggested spellings, ignore it, or add the word to the custom dictionary.
