In LO-3.5.0 Calc I am offered a completed word or phrase as I start typing
in a cell. The list of potential completions varies with the column.
However, there are some mis-spelled words in that list and I would like to
edit them out.

How do I access these lists? I find nothing in the Tools->Options menus.
And Tools->Cell Contents only lets me turn on or off this completion



This has nothing to do with the Tools>AutoCorrect options.
Since 95% of today's spreadsheet users try to misuse spreadsheets as a database for text data, all constant text values within the same column are offered as a category list analogue to a combo box in a database form.

This can be turned off for the entire Calc component in Tools>CellContents>AutoInput

List validation provides a more controllable feature where you define a list of values which is supposed to be valid for a defined range of cells. Data>Validity... Type: "List" or "Cell Range".
