Hi Everyone,

I have created Word Application object as following.

MyWordApp = CreateObject("Word.Application")
With MyWordApp.ActiveDocument
    .TrackRevisions = True
    .ShowRevisions = True
    .PrintRevisions = True
    .Compare(Doc2, , 1)
End With

It works fine ! But when Doc1 or Doc2 has Track Changes On and I compare them, I encounter "Command Failed" error.

Any solution to compare a Document that has Track Changes On ?

OK, why are you enable TrackRevision before comparing documents?

See MS Help. Take a look at "IgnoreAllComparisonWarnings" variable.

Compare Method
See AlsoApplies ToExampleSpecificsDisplays revision marks that indicate where the specified document differs from another document.

expression.Compare(Name, AuthorName, CompareTarget, DetectFormatChanges, IgnoreAllComparisonWarnings, AddToRecentFiles)
expression Required. An expression that returns a Document object.

IgnoreAllComparisonWarnings Optional Variant. True compares the documents without notifying a user of problems. The default value is False.
