Unable to initialize Spell Check function in Excel.


Hi everyone!


I am currently using the Mac-side Excel product, version Microsoft 365 16.54 (21101001). Whenever I use the spell checker, an error message "Unable to initialize spell checker" pops up. I would like to ask for professional help.


Thank you so much!


Best regards,
- Ling

By any chance does the spellcheck feature work in Word but not Excel?
