Excel - spell check not working within VBA RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a excel worksheet where I want to run a VBA to create a PDF of a certain range of cells, but before the PDF is created I need a spell check.

    This worked OK for me in Excel 10, but since moving to 365 the spell check crashes.   

    Spell check works fine manually, but not with the VBA.  

    Code i am using is


    When the macro runs, it opens the spell check dialogue, and will only let me press cancel, it wont let me use any of the suggested corrections.

    Frustratingly it does work intermittently but i'm yet to isolate the reason why!

    Please note this is in windows7.
