It is likely that the words not being checked are formatted for no proofing.

Open one of the documents and press Shift-F1. Then click on one of the
misspelled words. Word will display the formatting applied to that Word (and
the source of the formatting).

If it says "no proofing" or "do not check spelling and grammar" you need to
modify the language setting. Select your entire document (Ctrl-A) and use
Tools Language to change the setting.
