Spell-check turned off by drop downlist?

By lars11 ·
I have created three drop down lists in a word document. The problem now is that when people insert text in the document, they cannont use spell check. Can this be avoided? (Office 97)
Regards,
Lars

Spell-check turned off by drop downlist?

When a document is protected, spellcheck is turned off. Even worse, if you turn protection off, spellcheck and then reapply protection, the form will reset itself.
Here is a Macro that will protect your data and allow spellchecking:
