When 2 different people review the same file with 'track changes' switched on, one after the other, the names of the reviewers are visible in the 'track change' bubbles. I would like the changes to remain visible, but for the reviewer names to be deleted so that the customer cannot tell which reviewer made which change. Is there any way of doing this? I think I have gone through all the Office help files now but could not find the anwer.

I think the following actions should do the trick:

In Word, while the document is open, go to Tools > Options, and tick “Remove personal information from this file”. Then, save the file.

Warning: By these actions, ALL personal information attached to the file (it can be viewed in Properties) will be deleted.

Hi all,

Please note that the option above was only introduced in the later version of Office (I think from 2003). If you're running anything older, you'll have problems.

I found a workaround, but I haven't tried it myself (migrated to another computer with 2003 instead):

Thank you for the tip Feb 26, 2007

Many thanks, Mihai and Jan. I don't understand why I didn't find the previous thread during my search through the forums. The reviewers will synchronise their names under 'options' and I've learned about removing the personal information, which is useful.
