    Accept revision and jump to next one?

    The "Accept" and "Reject" buttons in the Word 2002 Reviewers toolbar do not automatically jump to the next revision, as the 2000 version buttons did. Believe it or not, this change has prompted a halt in the deployment of Windows and Office XP to our staff.
    I have opened two cases with MSDN tech. support trying to find an answer, and the closest we came to one was by displaying the 2000 Reviewers toolbar under Word 2002. But, alas, it does not work with comments. I have also looked at code from the MSDN folk (and some in this forum) that loops through revisions and/or comments in various ways. But none of this is quite the same, unfortunately, as having a pair of buttons on the toolbar that would accept or reject a change or comment and move to the next one. I tried to record these actions into macros, but the resulting code does not work reliably.

    If your sympathy for a very frustrated sysadmin would allow it, would you be kind enough to tell me if this is possible and, if so, help us to do it?

    Gosh, I think Woody did a WOW on this topic. Search the WOW articles. I think the solution had something
    to do with turning on the old-style Reviewer/Revision toolbar.

    If by "old-style" you mean the 2000 Reviewers toolbar, we've tried that without complete success, as I stated in my original post. I emailed Woody about this and I am hoping he (or someone else) will have some ideas. In the meantime, forgive a newbie question and please explain what a WOW is.

    Hi Milton:
    I'm not sure I can help, but I hope I can make your search go a little quicker. When you use the link Kevin provided (or get there through clicking the W*W link at the bottom of this page), I have a list of volumne numbers that Woody published on tracked changes. That might save you some time looking, but I haven't gone through to see which, if any, might solve your problem. They are:

    Woody's Office for Mere Mortals #3.01 - Editing in the real world
    Woody's OFFICE for Mere Mortals #3.03 - Protecting a document
    Woody's OFFICE for Mere Mortals #3.04 - More track changes
    Woody's OFFICE for Mere Mortals #3.05 - Final words in track changes
    Woody's Office Watch #7.06 - Rejected Changes
    Woody's OFFICE Watch #7.12 - Word's Word Count Don't Count
    Woody's OFFICE Watch #7.19 - Tracking Changes

    Hope this helps.
