microsoft word spelling and grammer

Hi everyone! Does anyone know a way of correcting/resetting the 'Spelling and Grammer' checking device on word... For some reason when checking a document it says the spelling is ok, but when I look it isn't correct..

Many thanks

Hi Rosalie,
Have you checked to see whether you have US or UK checking !
My machine constantly reverts to US spelling despite several attempts to swap it over.
Might be the problem.

How do you know it isn't correct?

The spelling in your thread title is wrong, so perhaps you're incorrect

If you mean that Word doesn't indicate spelling errors.....

Have you looked in Word <Tools <Options <Spelling and Grammar tab.

There is a box "Hide Spelling errors in this document"
Un-tick that box.

Hi everyone!
Thanks for getting back!

I'm not sure what I did, I was just messing around in the 'Tools, Options folder and now it seems to work...Mmmmmmmmmmmmmm!!!

Thanks again
