Is it possible to use the spell checker in Base? If not why not?

There is some discussion of this in the LO documentation under the Macros chapter 9 found here. The code and working sample is also available in the zip file.

Thanks. I couldn't find it in the documentation at first because I wasn't looking in the 5.0 documentation. It would be nice if spell checking were integrated into Base without having to use a macro.

I posted a sample database on OpenOffice forum that demonstrates how to use a macro to check spelling in a Base text box on a form. You may want to check it out. It's simple and works for me.
