View Two Word Documents Side By Side - Word 2003

Do you have a couple of rather similar word documents that you need to compare? Microsoft Word 2003 comes with a built-in document comparison tool where you can view and edit two documents side-by-side.
1. Open both the documents that you want to compare in Microsoft Word 2003.
2. Select Window > Compare Side by Side With.

3. If you have both the two documents open, the menu item will mention both the document’s file name. If not, a dialog box will appear and allows you to choose the documents to compare.

4. Now both the document will appear side by side.

5. When you scroll down one document, the other document will scroll down as well.

4. A Compare Side floating tool bar will appear. If you want one document to scroll while the other doen not scroll, click the left button (it looks like two documents side-by-side)

5. View or edit your document .When done, click Close Side by Side.

Wasn't this cool?No more messy editing or viewing two similar word documents!
