At Crosspointe, we’ve supported NetDocuments for many years and with good reason: It is a cloud-based document management and email management application with outstanding organizational capabilities and security standards, bar none.  In addition, it also contains useful features, one of which is ndCompare.  As its name suggests, it allows a user to compare documents in Word and gives options once the comparison is complete.

Here’s how it works:

In order to use this feature, you’ll need to work on a machine that accesses ndOffice and be logged in to your NetDocuments account.

  1. In Word, go to the Review tab and select ndCompare


2. Select the first document from your NetDocuments repository and open it

3. Now select and open the second document you wish to compare. (If this document came from an outside source, use the Windows Open command and browse to its location.)





4. The documents are shown in the order in which they were selected. If you want to change the order between the Original document and the Revised document, use the icon showing up and down arrows in-between them

5. Click OK to begin comparing the two documents

After the process is complete, here are your options –

  • Save the Results – Open the ndSave dialog box. The Compared Documents folder appears where two documents are located: the original document and the revised one. The original document is preselected and the Save as new version check box is selected by default. Select Save.
  • Save As Attachment – Next to the ndCompare button on the toolbar is the button Save As Attachment. Use this option to save the compared document as an attachment to the original document.
