Recheck document - Document checks the spelling and grammar again after you change spelling and grammar options or open a custom or special dictionary. The button name is Check Document if you haven't yet run the spelling and grammar checker during this Word session. When you click Recheck Document, Word also resets the internal Ignore All list. This means that, during the next spelling and grammar check, Word will check all words for which you previously clicked Ignore All. The name of the button was changed in 2007 back to Check Document.
