We can easily apply the Spelling function to spell check the text string from a cell, but this feature is not applied to the textbox for spelling check. In this article, I will talk about how to apply the spell check in a textbox.
To spell check the text string in a text box, the below VBA code may do you a favor:
1. First, please insert a textbox by clicking Developer > Insert > Text Box (ActiveX Control), and drag to draw a textbox, see screenshot:
2. Then, please exit the Design Mode to enter the text string into the textbox as you need, after typing the text, go on enabling the Design Mode, and right click the textbox to select View Code from the context menu, see screenshot:
3. In the opened Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications window, please replace the original code with the following VBA code into the Module.
VBA code: Apply spell check in textbox:
Dim xObject As Object
Dim xCell As Range
On Error Resume Next
Set xCell = ActiveSheet.Cells(ActiveSheet.Rows.Count, ActiveSheet.Columns.Count)
If ActiveSheet.OLEObjects.Count > 0 Then
For Each xObject In ActiveSheet.OLEObjects
xCell = xObject.Object.Text
xCell.CheckSpelling , , , 1033
xObject.Object.Text = xCell
4. And then press F5 key to run this code, the Spelling dialog box is enabled at once, then, you can use the Spelling function to spell check the text into textbox as following screenshot shown:
