Default Spell check from VB problem

I have a problem with Spell check, if I select a Field and spell check from menu that field is checked. that's fine.
But, If I use VB

    Me.Modules.SetFocus ‘ the field to spell check
    DoCmd.RunCommand acCmdSpelling

I get the from that pint & the rest of the records get spell checked
Is there any way to restrict spell check to just one field in VB

Hi Bob,

I've run across the same problem... Mine was maginified by the fact that I had a tab control setup with multiple text fields on each, and then made the mistake of doing a spell check each time a field lost focus.

From what I understand, this isn't possible with the standard Spell check command. I did see a package online that claimed to do this, but they wanted a license fee, and I am way too cheap.

What I ended up doing was adding a spell check button on the form, so that a user could choose when and if to run the spell check.

Sorry I couldn't be more help,
