    How can I track user's key strokes? (Word 97/2000/2002)

    Hi there,

    I need to be able to output and track inside a separate application content users enter into a word document. The application needs to update itself real time with each key stroke.

    Is this possible? Will I need to access the Windows API?

    Also, out of interest, is this doable in .NET?

    Any feedback would be much appreciated [img]/forums/images/smilies/smile.gif[/img]

    Thanks,

    -- Chris

    Hi Chris. I know there is "spyware" that can be put on a machine that will track every single keystroke made on the machine, but I do not know if there is one just for Word. For an "all and everything keystroke tracker", you could try using a search engine and look for keystroke trackers, or go to one of the PC mags sites and see what they have. TUCOWS or TUDOGS sites are also an option.
    I suspect that if you want one only for Word, you would have to write a macro to do it.

    Question though...could you not do this by turning on "Track Changes"? Then any changes that anyone made to the document would be "flagged" -- so to speak.
