    basic merge/track changes question (XP/SP2)

    Hi

    What circumstances prompt the "do you want to merge xyz.doc with . . ." message?
    Once someone has entered yes to that question, can you turn that feature off again?

    Thanks

    Hi Nancy:
    Could you be more specific about the message & what you're doing when it happens? If you go to Tools/Merge Documents... (I have Word 2000, so XP menus may be a little different), you will get a message that "the merged documents contain unmarked changes. Do you want to merge up to the first untracked change?", if your document has untracked changes.

    Do you get this message for documents you received by e-mail?
    <hr>When you send a Word 2002 document in e-mail the AdHocReviewCycleID property is added to the document and the property is assigned a randomly generated GUID value. When you open a document with an AdHocReviewCycleID value, the value is compared to the GUIDs of documents that you have previously created on your computer. If the GUID matches a GUID on your computer, you are prompted with the following dialog:

    Do you want to merge changes in DocumentName back into FilePathDocumentName?

    To remove the AdHocReviewCycleID property, follow these steps:
    1. <LI>Open the document.
      <LI>Click File, click Properties, and then click the Custom tab.
      <LI>In the Properties window, under the Name heading, click _AdHocReviewCycleID, and then click Delete.
      <LI>Click OK.
    <hr>

    That was exactly it - worked like a charm!
    Thank you very much.
