    Cannot accept revisions

    In Word 7.0/95, I am revising a document created by someone else. The document has extensive revisions, and I need to accept them so that I can start with a clean document (when I am finished, my revisions need to be indicated with revision marks). However, in the Tools, Revisions dialog, the Accept All and Reject All buttons are greyed out. Furthermore, if I click Review, it will take me to the revisions, but will not allow me to Accept or Reject. I've never encountered this before.

    I've tried this on two different PCs, with the same results. The document contains several screen shots, etc. and is 32 mb. Would the file size be causing the problem? If so, can anything be done?

    Hi - I too have experienced this, but it turned out that the document was actually Protected for Tracked Changes. As this is someone else's document, could they have protected it? To unprotect it, you will need to know the password.

    That was it. There was no password used, all I had to do was go to Tools, Unprotect Document. Sometimes, I overlook the obvious. <img src=/S/confused.gif border=0 alt=confused width=15 height=20> Thanks!
