    Track Changes (Word 2003)

    After accepting all changes in a document and track changes is off; if a paragraph has auto numbering and a user deletes the numbering it will show up as marked. Has anyone come across this before? I've seen it in three different documents. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

    I see it very regularly and use a macro to clean these oddities up after they have occurred. I don't know of a way to stop the problem from happening in the first place.
    <pre>Sub AcceptFormatRevisions()
    Dim aRev As Revision
    For Each aRev In ActiveDocument.Revisions
    'aRev.Range.Select
    Select Case aRev.Type
    Case wdRevisionStyle, wdRevisionDisplayField, _
    wdRevisionParagraphNumber, wdRevisionParagraphProperty, _
    wdRevisionProperty
    aRev.Accept
    End Select
    Next aRev
    End Sub</pre>

    Hi Andrew,

    I find it tends to happen in a change-tracked document when the document has unconfirmed tracked changes and 'track changes' is 'off' when the change is made.
    Cheers,
