    Compressing Word 2010 to remove residual properties, text, etc.

    At work, we often use previous reports as shells for current reports. So, I'll be working in a Word 2010 doc that we wrote for project X/client X as a shell for project Y/client Y.

    Because of this, there apparently is residual information, properties, and characters from X that still exists in Y, even after I've accepted all changes and removed any obvious instances in the report text. This might be the names or initials of people who have worked on it, etc.

    My boss mentioned that he knew how to compress all this out of the document, but in earlier versions of Word. I've volunteered to research this, and haven't seen a similar function so far in Word 2010, and am not sure exactly what kind of residual information he's referring to, b/c it doesn't appear in the actual report text.

    Thanks for any ideas folks might have about this.

    See Remove hidden data and personal information from Office documents . This applies to Office 7 but may also be valid for Word 2010.
