Microsoft Word/combining documents

Question
hello Aidan

I recently sent you a question regarding combining documents.
I came up with the idea of trying the same procedure in Word 2003 and Word 2010. In these two editions, the problem that I'm encountering in Word 2007 does not exist !!
What does this mean? Is my edition of Word 2007 corrupted, or more likely, the settings in the Track Changes Options dialog box are different from those in the older and newer editions. How can I find out?

thanks

Chris

Answer
My GUESS would be that it's an "improvement" made by microsoft that has actually made things worse - my clue that it's an improvement comes from http://www.computertraininggeorgia.com/2009/06/word-2007-enhances-compare-and-me - which may also give you some clues as to the way to do it (and possibly the changes)
