Word 2007 undo / revert accept track changes RRS feed

  • Question

  • One of our users accidentally accepted all changes using the Review
    options, document was saved yesterday and the word document has been exited
    and computer rebooted. No old temp files seem to be available, and older
    backups are not readily available. Does Word 2007 (SP2) have any
    multi-level undo to back out these unwanted changes to the document in a
    scenario such as this one? When opening the document the Undo menu is
    grayed out, and since all changes have been applied there are no options
    under the Review ribbon that seem available. Lastly, could there be old
    version(s) stored in the DOCX file if I rename it as .ZIP and explore the
    internal structure?

  • Hi,

    I'm afraid not. Word 2003 had versioning (save as, with different versions saved), 2007 and later versions use Sharepoint to do versioning.

    If you have an older version of the document somewhere, you can do a compare.

    Kind regards
