    Sort & Print Review Notes (XP)

    We review Word documents and make Comments on selected text. In the comments, we use codes to indicate the type of issue raised in the comment (can use DocProperty for this). We would like to print out the selected text and the related comment, sorted by issue code. We never need to actually REVISE the original document, only review and comment.

    If we could buy third party software for this, it would be ideal. Will appreciate your suggestions.

    Thanks

    Re: Sort & Print Review Notes (XP)

    I'm still using Word 2000, and obviously nothing like that is built in. It would not be too terribly complicated to write a VBA program (macro) that, starting with a document full of comments, produced a document that listed the individual comments followed by the text to which they are attached. Or the full paragraph containing the text to which they were attached. Like these before and after mock-ups. There would be a bit of a challenge to figure out how to sort them in the manner you want because I suspect that there will be many "ties" if you just sort by the code. But there would be many ways to handle this.

    So, if you don't find a product to do this, perhaps you could "roll your own."

    I stumbled across this article on MSDN. Although it's for Office 2000, it might give you some ideas. As you can see, the code isolates and displays the commented-on text in a dialog along with the comment. Using this underlying plumbing, you could assemble the various pieces into a document.
