Combine revisions from multiple authors

Hi All, I was wondering if we can use MS Word Document’s feature on the Review tab, in the Compare group –> Compare –> Combine revisions from multiple authors.

We have a document which has to be reviewed by multiple people and then comments from different people has to be merged to create the final document. We have to do this in Java. This is for a small Proof of concept we are building.

Thanks,

Hi there,

Thanks for your inquiry. Yes, you can compare documents using Document.Compare method. This method compares this document with another document producing changes as number of edit and format revisions Revision.

Please read following documentation link for your kind reference.

Hope this helps you. Please let us know if you have any more queries.

Hi Sir,


I am not able to merge the documents and getting Exception if the document has revisions. I want to achieve the feature "Combine revisions from multiple authors"

I have multiple revisions of a document which are reviewed by few people. Now the changes done by all these people should be merged and we should have a final merged document. Can you help me ?

Thanks,
Tarun
