Chapter 8. Collaborating with Others > Comparing and Merging Documents

Comparing and Merging Documents

Sometimes you might want to compare several versions of the same document. For example, if you have sent a document out for review by colleagues, you might want to compare their edited versions with the original document. Or you might want to compare an earlier version of a document with the current version. Instead of comparing multiple open documents, you can make this process much easier by using Word to compare the documents and merge the changes into one document.


When you compare and merge documents, Word shows the differences as tracked changes. If several reviewers return their changes and comments in separate documents, you can merge all their changes into a single document so that you can review them in one document. From within that one document, you can view all the changes from all the reviewers or view only those from a specific reviewer.
