    Checking the TrackRevisions property of a closed document (Track Changes)

    Hi

    Does anyone know if it is possible to check the .trackrevisions property of a document (i.e., true/false) without actually opening it up? If so, I'd be grateful if someone could steer me in the right direction.

    Thank you.

    Dan

    You could examine the contents of the settings.xml archive in a docx or docm document, to see whether the string <w:trackRevisions/> is present. A whole lot more work than simply opening and checking the document's .TrackRevisions state...

    As a completion to what macropod said, change the extension from docx/docm to zip and extract it in order to see the settings.xml file, and many other files for that matter.
