How To Compare Two Documents in Microsoft Word

Jun 20, 2011

If you want to compare an earlier version of a document with the current version of a document, you can compare the documents and then merge the changes into one document if needed in Microsoft Word.
When you compare and/or merge documents, Word shows the differences between them as tracked changes.
To merge and compare documents, follow these steps:

  1. On the Standard toolbar, click the Open button.
  2. Locate and open the copy of the file that contains the changes.
  3. On the Tools menu, click Compare and Merge Documents.
  1. Locate and click the file you want to compare. Click the Merge down arrow, and then click Merge into current document.

    The deletions and changes from the document appear on the screen in the current document.
