Remove Spell Check Indicators (Squiggles)

Learn VBA Macros From Microsoft Word Code Vault Snippets

What This VBA Code Does:

This code shows a few different ways you can remove those visually irritating little squiggles from your Word document.  I use this on selected text that doesn't have any legitimate spelling errors.  This situation occurs quite often to me when I copy VBA code into my Word documents.

Sub Spell_Check_Squiggles()

'PURPOSE: Shows various ways to remove spell check indicators

'Mark the Document as Already Spell-Checked
    ActiveDocument.SpellingChecked = True
'Disable Spell Checking for a Range of Text:
    'Entire Document
        ActiveDocument.Range.NoProofing = True
    'Only Second Paragraph
        ActiveDocument.Paragraphs(2).Range.NoProofing = True
        Selection.NoProofing = True
'Disable the Display of the Red Squiggles
    ActiveDocument.ShowSpellingErrors = False

End Sub
