Can anyone tell me how to fix this? Recently everytime I want to do a spellcheck in word 2003 it says:

Text marked with "do not check spelling or grammar" was skipped.

This generally refers to almost the entire document. Obviously I have not marked any text as such but I cannot find how to unmark this either, do anyone have any suggestions about how to fix this?

Check the styles Dec 11, 2006

Obviously some styles are defined with "Do not check spellin and grammar".

Hi Lesley, Dec 12, 2006

I use Word 2002, but I think in Word 2003 this should be the same. Select all your text (Ctrl. + A). Then go to Tools > Language > Set Language. A dialog-box will appear. Uncheck the “Do not check spelling or grammar" box.
