Configuring Spelling and Grammar Options
You can control a few spelling options by configuring the Proofing settings in Word Options,
as shown in Figure 10-5. On the File tab, click Options, and then click the Proofing category.
Table 10-2 provides a description of each of the proofing options. As you can see, some
options apply to all Microsoft Office programs, and others relate only to your Word
document. By configuring these spelling checker options, you can customize spelling tasks to
be as streamlined as possible for the particular types of documents you create.
Figure 10-5 The Proofing options allow you to specify how Word should proof your documents.

Spelling Option Description
Ignore Words In UPPERCASE Excludes words in all uppercase from spelling checks. The
spelling checker would be hard pressed to understand all
acronyms, so this check box is selected by default. If you use
a number of acronyms—and you’d like to check them—you
can add the acronyms to your custom dictionary and clear
the Ignore Words In UPPERCASE check box.
Ignore Words That Contain
By default, any words that contain numbers are ignored by
the spelling checker. You’ll especially appreciate this option
if you’re proofreading documents such as catalogs or price
lists in which product codes are combinations of numbers
and letters.
