"I have a small (2 Attorney) law firm and do quite a
bit of contract intensive business law and real estate work.
Like many others I have been very frustrated by Word's
erratic document comparison tool. At times it highlights
entire paragraphs rather than just the changes. Like
everyone else who has griped in this forum, I too found the
pricing of Delta View to be prohibitively high.
After reading about Word DocDiff here, I recently downloaded
the trial version from the Word DocDiff website
<http://www.SoftInterface.com> . I found the interface very useable
and the results (for my purposes) were quite good. It can provide
several different views illustrating the changes made to the
document as well as a combined "redline" document in word format
showing all of the changes. It can also provide a report identifying
the page and paragraph number where the changes are located.
I have only used the tool about twenty times so far and
therefore would hesitate to say it is the greatest thing since
sliced bread, however, I would say it is well worth the time to
download the trial version (for free) and evaluate it for yourself."

"I found a product called Diff Doc that seems to
work quite well for comparing Word documents against other Word
documents! (I don't know how well it works with WordPerfect, though
the documentation claims that it is supported). Like many of you, I
was looking at DeltaView and was very upset at their inability to
work with us on the pricing structure. Diff Doc can also run from
command line, so integration with document managers is a snap (the
author modified the code over a couple of hours for me to get it to
work with WORLDOX Versioning. In return, I wrote his FAQ on WORLDOX
integration). Download an evaluation copy at <http://www.softinterface.com/>."
Troy Piersma excerpt from a
"Just read the
post from Troy Piersma. I concur completely. I recently left a
big firm which used DeltaView, and looked to get an equivalent
program after being blown off by the DeltaView sales rep because I
wasn't big enough for their policy. My Tabs and Practices master
reseller, Judy Lassek, had also put me in WORLDOX, with which I am
very pleased. She had heard of DiffDocs through her network, and I
downloaded it and tried it out. I had a hard time comparing versions
of the same document at first, but after receiving an update from
DiffDocs, it has worked very well for me. My practice is
transactional, requiring revising contracts regularly, and the
program works great for doing that kind of comparison. I recommend
that solos and others try it out, if for no other reason than the
company is such a refreshing change from its
competition! However, that wouldn't make much difference if the
product itself weren't good." Michael V. Mulchay, PLC
products are very impressive, easy to use and script compatible, for what we
desired in the management of MS Word and Excel files. Thank you for your
