Excel: Spell checking

Spell checking is well known to those who work with text editors, such as Microsoft Word.

Because you use text not only in text editors, spell checking can also be useful in other programs. That's why Microsoft added this tool to other Office applications.

To open the spell checker, select REVIEW >> Proofing >> Spelling or use the F7 key. Excel checks the spelling cell by cell, row by row. If it encounters value that seems to him to be incorrect, it stops there and displays a list of suggestions where you can decide what you want to do in the current situation.

 

If Excel doesn't encounter any suspicious words it displays the message informing you that the spell checking is complete.
