How to Use Spell Check in Google Sheets
Google Sheets has a built-in spell check feature that can be used to check for spelling errors in your sheet. This can be helpful if you want to make sure your data is accurate, or if you want to avoid embarrassing mistakes.
When using the spell check feature, you can choose to check the entire sheet or just the selected cells. You may also choose to add a flagged word to your personal dictionary.
In this guide, we will show you how to use the spell check feature in Google Sheets.
How to Find Misspelled Words in Google Sheets
Here’s how to find misspelled words in Google Sheets.
First, select the range you want to spell check.
Next, click on Tools > Spelling > Spell check. This will open up a dialog box on the upper-right side of the Google Sheets window.
If the Spell Check feature finds any misspelled words, it will prompt the user to perform an action.
You may either choose to change the word to the suggested spelling, ignore the current error, or add the flagged word to your personal dictionary.
If there are multiple instances of the same flagged word, the Spell Check allows you to change the spelling of all instances.
Click on the drop-down arrow to reveal the option to change all instances of the current word to the correct spelling.
Users can check their personal dictionary by selecting Tools > Spelling > Personal Dictionary.
