You may have a word such as a surname, company name or technical name that isn’t in the Microsoft dictionary, so is flagged each time you run a spell check, causing you extra work. Words that are not in the Microsoft dictionary have a red wavy line under them.
With the document open, right-click on the word with a red line under it that should be added to the dictionary.
From the context menu, click Add to Dictionary.
Alternatively, having completed a document, click the Review tab, and in the Proofing group, select Spelling & Grammar.
The Spelling and Grammar dialog box opens.
Click Add to Dictionary.
Click Close. The word is added to the dictionary and will no longer be flagged as being misspelt when it is typed in any future documents.
