Definitions of these words / Back to Free Stuff

From Rita Garcia,
You can make a WP 5.1 macro for common medical homonyms: This macro checks for homonyms or any word you put in your list. It does not know if the word is correct or not, it just identifies them for you.

The list must be loaded in document one, and the document to be checked as document two. The curser for both documents should be at the top of the document. Then while in document two, the document that you want checked, run the macro.

This macro will look at the list of words and if that word is found in the document, it will underline the word in the document. Using a shorter list of words will speed up the macro; a longer list will check for more words. Send us your corrections or additions.
