To select the default locale
you check the spelling in a form, you should verify that the correct
default form locale is selected. The locale option that is selected
in the Default Form Locale list in the Form Properties dialog box
specifies the default language that Designer uses to check spelling.
For quick reference, the current spell-check language is indicated
in the upper-right corner of the Check Spelling dialog box, just
below the title bar.
If you apply different locale options to individual objects in
the form by using the Locale list in the Object palette, those locale
settings override the default form locale setting. That is, when
the locale setting for an object is different from the locale setting
for the form, Designer identifies the words (text) associated with these
objects as being misspelled.
When applying different locale options to individual objects,
keep in mind that the objects that are within tables and subforms
automatically receive the same locale setting as the table and subform
If you select a locale option (language) that
the spell-check feature does not support, a message appears indicating
that objects with that particular locale setting will not be spell
File > Form Properties.
Click the Defaults tab and, in the Form Locale list, select
the language you want the spell-check feature to use.
