    tracking changes within a group (97 +)

    What is the best way to have a group individually, and simultaneously, review a document, make changes, then consolidate all those changes into a single document showing the changes made (proposed) by each person so that the team lead can review and accept/reject those changes. This means that the team lead will need to be able to choose among several possible changes to the same item/area in the document.

    Re: tracking changes within a group (97 +)

    Last year we had a thread on how to reconcile multiple documents with revision marks. I don't recall a quick and easy solution, so the idea of all working on a single document is very appealing. Word natively requires exclusive rights to a document. There is an add-in/companion application for Word 2000-2002-2003 (CoWord) which hosts Word documents for simultaneous editing, but I'm not sure how changes are marked. Perhaps you lock the document for tracked changes first?
