    Between steps one and two, you should click on a cell in your workbook. If on any of your worksheets you have highlighted multiple cells the last time you were there, only those cells will be spell-checked. By clicking a single cell after selecting All Sheets, you will ensure that Spell Check hits the entirety of each workbook.
