Make sure your Excel has the Developer Tab enabled following this tutorial.
I explain how you can do this below step by step!
What does it do?
Highlights the cells with incorrect spelling
Copy Source Code:
Sub HighlightMisspellings() Dim cell As range For Each cell In ActiveSheet.UsedRange 'Check the spelling and if it's wrong, then change the style to be Bad If Not Application.CheckSpelling(word:=cell.Text) Then cell.Style = "Bad" End If Next cell End Sub
