Checking the spelling in your worksheet
Checking the spelling in your worksheet
After you create a workbook and fill it with data, labels, and
explanatory text, you should always use the Excel spelling
checker to check your text for misspellings. If Excel finds a word
it doesn’t recognize, the spelling checker asks you whether
it’s correct and might suggest alternatives. You can have Excel
ignore a word once or for the entire document, choose one
of the program’s suggestions, or even add new words to the
dictionary. Products are often given unique names, so adding
them to the dictionary that Excel uses to check all documents
can save you a lot of time.

from the beginning of the worksheet. Click Yes to continue.
