No Prompt to Save Changes After Running Spelling Checker PSS ID Number: Q102189 Article last modified on 07-14-1994

2.00 2.00a 2.00a-CD 2.00b 2.00c

WINDOWS

The information in this article applies to:
- Microsoft Word for Windows, versions 2.0, 2.0a, 2.0a-CD, 2.0b, 2.0c

SYMPTOMS

Word for Windows does not prompt you to save changes to a document when you close the document after you run the spelling checker if you change spelling only in the footnote.

CAUSE

This happens because Word does not change the document status to “dirty” (that is, flag the file as changed) if the only change you make is to the footnote during a spelling check operation.

STATUS

We are researching this problem and will post new information here in the Microsoft Knowledge Base as it becomes available.

WORKAROUND

You must save the file before you close it to keep these changes.
