Microsoft Office Word Spell Checker for SAPGUI fields

Sometime back (July 2003) I have posted a code sample in www.searchsap.com about a tool to enable MS word spell checker for SAPGUI fields and the same was re-posted here in SDN as well. In this code sample I have used a custom activeX control which utilizes Microsoft Word’s spell checking functionality.

I am thrilled to note that as of WAS6.40, SAP offers a similar function (with some additional features) which also utilizes MS word’s spell checker to do spell checking. In case if you have used my code sample earlier and if you are on WAS6.40 you can switch to this new function module LXE_SP_CHECKSPELLING_MS . Using this standard one you don’t need to install additional activeX components on all client machines.

      I havent tried it, but you could plug the FM in using field exit to do a spell check.

      If your language is not supported, you have to add/map the iso languages (T002) in table LXE_LA_MS to the microsoft languages found e.g. in Appendix F - Country/Region and Language Codes .
