expression Required. A variable that represents a Range object.
|CustomDictionary||Optional||Variant||Either an expression that returns a Dictionary object or the file name of the custom dictionary.|
|IgnoreUppercase||Optional||Variant||True to ignore words in all uppercase letters. If this argument is omitted, the current value of the IgnoreUppercase property is used.|
|MainDictionary||Optional||Variant||Either an expression that returns a Dictionary object or the file name of the main dictionary. If you don't specify a main dictionary, Microsoft Word uses the main dictionary that corresponds to the language formatting of the first word in the range.|
|SuggestionMode||Optional||Variant||Specifies the way Word makes spelling suggestions. Can be one of the following WdSpellingWordType constants. The default value is wdSpellword.|
|CustomDictionary2 – CustomDictionary10||Optional||Variant||Either an expression that returns a Dictionary object or the file name of an additional custom dictionary. You can specify as many as nine additional dictionaries.|
If the word is spelled correctly, the Count property of the SpellingSuggestions object returns 0 (zero).
This example looks for the alternate spelling suggestions for the first word in the selected range. If there are suggestions, the example runs a spelling check on the selection.
If Selection.Range.GetSpellingSuggestions.Count = 0 Then Msgbox "No suggestions." Else Selection.Range.CheckSpelling End If
