Tracking Document Revisions
When you're passing a document around to colleagues to get some suggestions, you may not trust these people to make whatever revisions they wish. You may want to know exactly what changes they made and why, without risking having your original text altered. To keep an eye on the revisions made by others, you need to protect your document and set it to track changes.
To do so, choose Tools, Protect Document. When the Protect Document dialog box opens, click the Tracked Changes button and enter a password. This password ensures that only you will be able to make undocumented revisions to the document. Be sure to choose something you'll remember, and click OK.
