CheckSpelling - Use MSWord to check a word's spelling and provide suggestions

' this should be a module-level or global variable, so that
' Word is instantiated only once
Dim MSWord As New Word.Application

' check the spelling of a word
' returns True if the word is correct
' returns False if the word is not correct, and in this case it optionally
' returns a collection that contains all the suggested alternate words
' NOTE: requires a reference to the Microsoft Word Object Library

'    Dim suggestions As Collection, w As Variant
'    List1.Clear
'    If Not CheckSpelling(Text1.Text, suggestions) Then
'        For Each w In suggestions
'            List1.AddItem w
'        Next
'    End If

Function CheckSpelling(ByVal Word As String, Optional suggestions As Collection) _
    As Boolean
    Dim splSuggestion As Word.SpellingSuggestion
    Dim splSuggestions As Word.SpellingSuggestions
    ' Add a document, if there aren't any
    ' this is needed to get suggestions
    If MSWord.Documents.Count = 0 Then MSWord.Documents.Add
    ' ensure there are no extra spaces
    Word = Trim$(Word)
    ' initialize the returned collection
    Set suggestions = New Collection

    If MSWord.CheckSpelling(Word) Then
        ' the word is correct
        CheckSpelling = True
        ' the word is incorrect
        ' get the list of suggested words
        Set splSuggestions = MSWord.GetSpellingSuggestions(Word)
        For Each splSuggestion In splSuggestions
            suggestions.Add splSuggestion.Name, splSuggestion.Name
    End If

End Function
