A company for whom I work has an Access 2003 Runtime application with a SQL Server 2008 R2 backend which we recently updated to Access 2013 Runtime and SQL Server 2012 Express backend. We install Access 2013 RT, SharePoint Designer 2013 (for spell check), and if a new machine the Access client application. The spell check does as desired and the coding is a recommended several places on this site and others.

We have tested the application and it works unless we install Office 2007. This is the environment we faced at a location where we deployed the update files. Office 2007 is present which is why, when spell check failed to work at this location, we tested by downloading and installing Office 2007 at which time previously working spell check on the app failed and upon uninstalling Office 2007 it returned to working as desired.

The app, when a spelling error made in a control and lost focus occurs, selects the content of the control, which quickly disappears. No error is thrown, the app continues to work. Just the spell check does not. Office 2007 was installed prior to our deployment of the necessary Access 2013 related files.

Has anyone experienced a failure of and Access app using Runtime 2013 Office 15) and SharePoint Designer 2013 where Office 2007 is installed?

Hi,

Welcome to UtterAccess!

Assuming you're only installing SharePoint Designer to gain access to the spell checker, then perhaps you can uninstall it for clients with full Office Suites already available because Access should be able to use the spell checker from Office too. Correct?

Just a thought...

Thanks! Great idea to try. Raise the bridge or lower the water. Sometimes it is hard to think outside the box a bit.
I tested this and it did not resolve the spell check failure. Good thought though.
