The words have been formatted as "no proofing." Ctrl+A to select the entire
document, then go to Tools | Language | Set Language, and make sure that the
correct language is selected and that the box for "Do not check spelling or
grammar" is NOT checked.

I am having exactly the same problem, I have tried as Suzanne suggested but
this does not seem to be working.

The only strange thing I can see is that the text is in a table, might this
make a difference ?

Any ideas ?

You have selected the text in question and verified that the correct
language is assigned and that "Do not check spelling or grammar" is not
checked? Also, that "Hide spelling errors in this document" is not enabled?

i have tried all of this, it is picking up one word spelt incorrectly on one
page and not on another.

yes i have tried all of this. it is correctly identifying the incorrect
spelling of a word on one page but not on another.

Could it be that somewhere along the line you approved the alternate
spelling of that word?

Are you possibly still in the middle of a spell check and have you ignored
that word?
