Excel includes a spell checker you can use to check a worksheet for spelling errors.
The spell checker looks for spelling errors by comparing words on the worksheet
against words contained in its standard dictionary. If you often use specialized terms
that are not in the standard dictionary, you may want to add them to a custom
dictionary using the Spelling dialog box.
When the spell checker nds a word that is not in either dictionary, it displays
the word in the Spelling dialog box. You then can correct it if it is misspelled.
Does the spell checker catch all spelling mistakes?
While Excel’s spell checker is a valuable tool, it is not infallible. You should proofread your workbook carefully by pointing to
each word and saying it aloud as you point to it. Be mindful of misused words such as its and it’s, through and though, and to
and too. Nothing undermines a good impression more than a professional looking report with misspelled words.
