Word Compare

I have one user who is trying to compare to documents using the compare merge feature in Word.  When choose compare and choose the 2 documents i want it runs through the compare and when it finishes it only shows formatting changes even though i have everything selected and there are obvious word changes.  It should be showing word changes and so forth.  Please help as i have no idea why this is happening.

In the Compare Document dialogue box, press the More button and confirm that you have selected all the options.

I would suggest turning off all the features and do a compare with only a minimum set.
Then close everything, open again and turn on the compare features.
