Example using spellcheck in Excel

To use Spellcheck in Excel, just browse to the "Review" tab in your workbook and click "Spelling."

By default, it will check spelling for the whole worksheet, including the comments, page headers, footers and graphics.

If you select a range of cells before you click "Spelling," the check will be limited to cells you selected.

Note: Excel doesn’t check spelling in cells containing formulas.
