Is Word not auto-checking the doc at all, or just missing things?
There is an option in Word 2007 that allows you to hide spelling and
grammar errors on a by-document basis (not sure why anyone would want
to do that, but the option is there). However, that will disable all
checking for that document. If the document is being auto-checked but
is just missing things that are found in a manual check, I'm stumped.
