Tracking Changes

Tommy Williams
Hi, I need to upload a sample of my editing work to an employer. The submission must be in Word format with tracked changes showing the edits I have made to a piece of writing. I was wondering if am I able to track my changes in an Openoffice document and submit the document in Word format to this employer? And if I am able to do this, will they have any issues seeing my tracked changes since I would be converting it to a Word Document?

Thanks,
Tom

Hi Tom.

I had the same problem with a thesis I was writing. There are some problems
and one is whether the supervisor has the same version of Windows as is on
your computer. My supervisor was using Mac computer while I was using
windows and although he said he wanted it in Word my submission to him when
he got it showed no changes whatsoever.
After much experimenting I found Im needed to change the tag on the end of
my submission when you save it to a different file and have the tag as a
docx file instead. I then had to make some minor amendments because the two
different files had different spell checks and different spacing.
Someone else may have another answer so keep checking you inbox.

Cheers
Richard Beeston
