    track changes versions (W97 sr2a)

    HI
    we have a user that would like to distuinguish between the different versions of track changes.
    ie the doc already has track changes on ie for 1 author for edits blue underline - for deletions red strikethru.
    when she makes her edits
    for edits - eg green double unlined & deletions red #.

    when we change the author details & change the track change formats -
    the existing track changes displayed - the styles change to the new styles.

    Is there way to do this?
    besides applying format manually to each change
    ie select text & apply text font colour green underline to each etc.

    Hi Diana,

    The question is a bit unclear but the short answer is that there is no way, either interactively or programatically, to get a hook into Word's 'track change by author' engine to make it do what you want it to do. (At least for Word 97/2K, don't know about 2002.)

    Hi Diana:
    I'm also a little unclear about the last part of your message. However, if you want to keep track of which changes were made in which editing session, first make sure that Tools/Options/Track Changes tab has color set "by author", then you can go to Tools/Options/User Information tab. Change the Name to something different & Word will use a different color for track changes.

    i.e. if you change the user name successively to Diana1, Diana2, Diana3, etc., you can keep track of which time you made which changes (up to a point).

    Hope this helps.
