Default MS Word Grammar Check

Word is detecting the word 'effected' as being used incorrectly in a sentence
and it should not be. The exact sentence is:

Any notice to be given under this Agreement shall be given in writing and
may be effected by personal delivery or hand delivery by courier, by
overnight reputable national courier, or by placing such in the United States
certified mail, return receipt requested.

Is there a way to disable grammar check from trying to correct this word
each and every time? This sentence is in a document we use repeatedly and
people keep trying to change it.

Thanks,

Yes, by replacing "and may be effected by" with "via".

Unfortunately, I don't think so. You can turn off all Misused Words
though.

Office Button, Word Options, Proofing. Click the Writing Style Settings
button. Clear the checkmark from Misused Words.

Default MS Word Grammar Check

Select the word and format it as "Do not check spelling or grammar." You can
do this with direct formatting (from Tools | Language | Set Language) or by
applying a character style formatted as "Default Paragraph Font + Do not
check spelling or grammar." For more, see
http://sbarnhill.mvps.org/WordFAQs/MasterSpellCheck.htm (which deals with
spelling, but the character style will affect grammar as well).
