    Word 2002: on open, asks to merge documents (word 2002 sp-2)

    I know i have seen this fix before. When I open documents, word sometimes asks if I want to merge the document with the previous version it came from after doing a save as. How do i get this to stop?

    I think this happens when you send out the document using Outlook 2002; Outlook adds some markers into the document's properties. When it is re-opened, Word tries to square it with the original. There is a setting in Outlook to stop adding these markers, and there is a file you can delete from the hard drive, too.

    Now, for the details... this was covered in some detail many months ago in Woody's Office Watch. See item 2 in Volume 7, No. 52.
