VBA to read and write Word 'Track Changes while editing' option

I have an Access Application that does a lot of Word document manipulation. Certain automation features function differently based on whether on not the Word 'Track Changes while editing' option is checked.

Does anyone know of a way to detect this via vba? And to change it? I can't find it in the Word Object model.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks

Thank you very much.

Is there a way to read the Track Changes Options like the color scheme etc?

No I don't think so

the nearest you can get is
