Compare & Merge Question
Posted on 2011-03-08
I have two word documents which I’m trying to compare in order to show what has changed. X is the original one and Y is the updated one.
I take X and accept all previous changes and save it. I open Y and do same. With Y open I go to ‘Compare and Merge’ option and select X. I then click ‘Merge into new document’.
I get a popup regarding which document I want to take the formatting choices from. I select Y.
If the order of the document has been changed, i.e. the sections had been reordered would it be expected that document Z would depict the layout of X and not Y.
I’m worried because I don’t want to display data from the old document?
Should I only be running compare and merge between documents that have not been structurally changed?
Any advice appreciated.
