I need to extract the tracked changes to a new doc.
is there code for this?  

I know I can print the tracked changes to a pdf if you have a pdf printer installed but this is not what I want.  

There is a website that has code:

but wonder if there is something better that could say what section is was deleted from or just better location of exactly where the insertion or deletion occured.

thank you

    Regarding what section the Track Changes is from, maybe the location could be such that alongwith the page number (as presently in the code link above) it copies the first line of the paragraph where the tracked changes is located.  

    I know this is asking for quite a lot.  Dont expect any answers.  

    thanks though...

    See these references for information on Tracking revisions and Comments and vba code samples that you might be able to use to supplement the code you  already have:

    Thanks for the great comments.

    The original link in my question does present the tracked changes much better than the lmsdn link in your answer.  The other links I found useful.
