Word SpellChecker Example (Version 3) by jimoo
Posted: 23 Nov 03

Code to load Word and use Word's Spell Check and return the corrected results back to the form.  It's pretty simple.  I have used it in the past and it works very well.

This sample assumes the data is in an an edit box, but could easily be modified for any text item.  

Step 1. Create a new form
Step 2. Add an edit box (by default edit1)
Step 3. Add a command button
Step 4. Place the following code in the click-event of the button:

IF EMPTY(ThisForm.Edit1.Value)

oWord = CreateObject("word.application")

With oWord
   .Visible = .T.


ThisForm.Edit1.Value = _ClipText

MESSAGEBOX("Spell Check Complete.")
