Use custom dictionaries to add words to the spelling checker
When you use the spelling checker, it compares the words in your document with those in the tool's main dictionary. The main dictionary contains most common words, but it might not include proper names, technical terms, or acronyms. In addition, some words might be capitalized differently in the main dictionary than in your document. Adding such words or capitalization to a custom dictionary prevents the spelling checker from flagging them as mistakes.
What do you want to do? * Enable custom dictionaries * Open the Custom Dictionaries dialog box * Create a custom dictionary * Add an existing custom dictionary * Add, delete, or edit words in a custom dictionary * Change the language associated with a custom dictionary * Change the default custom dictionary to which the spelling checker adds words.

Since few days I'm trying to create a simple dictionary. To do that, I imported a sheet from within Excel consisting of two columns. The first column is filled with words in my native language, second with their English translation. Afterwards I created a form with combo boxes where I can choose the desired word. In the first box I can choose the words in Polish, in the second their English translations. I would like the form to work in such way, that when I choose the Polish word in the first box, in the second box I immediately see its English translation and the same thing the other way around. Could someone please guide me how to do this. I'm struggling with this since last week and I can't get it to work This is my first contact with MS Access so please be patient with me

Dictionary usage
I would like to know if there is anyway I can take a word in a txtbox and check to see if it is a valid English word, or even a valid word in any other language.

In other words, I would like to code the after update event of the text box to determine if the word is a valid spoken word.

In javascript you can sort an array with "array.sort(sortfunc)" where sortfunc is a function which compares two items that you can design yourself. This has always been tremendously useful for me.

Spelling or grammar checker flags text I don't want or expect it to flag
Sometimes you may want the spelling and grammar checker in your Microsoft Office program to ignore mistakes in some text. In other situations, you may not understand why the grammar or spelling checker is flagging some text, where the text may consist of a single word or an entire document.
What do you want to do? * Add a word or phrase to your custom dictionary * Ignore text or an entire style * Hide spelling and grammar errors in a Word document * Troubleshoot grammar checking in Word and Outlook * Ignore original message text in Outlook * Always ignore data in a field in an Access table
* Turn off fields for the spelling checker in Project * Resolve other issues.

Recursion or too many records lead to "Not Responding"
Using Access 2003, the following snipset produces 3.628.800 records. It is actually a permutation procedure, in this example, call GRListWords("", "ABBREVIATE", 10) 10 letters to form possible words in groups of 10 letters.
My problem is that I can not get them into a table - execution holds and get the message "Not responding".
Even-more, the same happens when I use Debug.Print from the immediate window! I should also note that it never runs to more than 20K-30K records.

Use exclusion dictionaries to specify a preferred spelling for a word
The following are a few situations where it is useful to be able to force the spelling checker to flag a word as misspelled, even though it is listed in the main dictionary as a correctly spelled word.
* Obscene or otherwise embarrassing words While working on a Microsoft Office PowerPoint presentation, you accidentally type pubic instead of public. * Style guidelines that you or your department wants to follow For example, theater is a correctly spelled word, but the style guidelines of your department require the word to be spelled theatre.

Modify AutoCorrect Replacement List
I just discovered that Access2007 AutoCorrect dictionary includes an item that will replace '(C)' with '@'. I can manually delete this item in each user install of Access but this doesn't prevent this item from being relisted or other similar items added to the list (which happened). I would like to handle locating and deleting these items programmatically but examples I found are for Excel and Word (see links below) and attempts to adapt failed. Even though I added library references for Excel and Word I get the 'not in collection' or 'does not support method' errors.

Refresh or requery data
If you are sharing a database over a network, other users could be changing data while you are viewing the same data in a datasheet or form. Microsoft Office Access updates the data that you see at set intervals. However, you can immediately display the most current data by refreshing the records. You can also perform a more thorough update by requerying the data.
What do you want to do?
* Refresh data
* Set the refresh interval
* Manually requery data
* Use a macro to requery data
* Use code to requery data

Filling in data in query
I have a table with data for only one day a week (Thursdays). This data is used for that week until we get a new set the following Thursday.

The table with data is called VFF and has columns Date, SeriesName, Value. This is updated every Thursday.

I want to create a new table with all calendar dates where I populate the dates using the latest available data in that week.

Thu Nov 10 data from Nov 10
Fri Nov 11 data from Nov 10
Sat Nov 12 data from Nov 10
Sun Nov 13 data from Nov 10
Mon Nov 14 data from Nov 10
Tue Nov 15 data from Nov 10
Wed Nov 16 data from Nov 10
Thu Nov 17 data from Nov 17
Fri Nov 18 data from Nov 17


I have tried to think of a few different solutions but I find they are not elegant nor very efficient.

If anyone has a good idea of how I should go about this I would be most grateful

Introduction to queries in Access 2007
When you want to review, add, change, or delete data from your database, consider using a query.
Using a query, you can answer very specific questions about your data that would be difficult to answer by looking at table data directly. You can use queries to filter your data, to perform calculations with your data, and to summarize your data. You can also use queries to automate many data management tasks and to review changes in your data before you commit to those changes.
