Any free tool to compare .doc or .docx (ms word files)?

The two tools mentioned for fc (winmerge and aptdiff) seem to compare plain text files only.

Any free tool that would compare MS Word 2010 doc or docx files?

Thanks.

Word has this feature built in. Look for "Compare" under the Review tab/menu.

For more info, read >here<.

excellent Tip, Rob.

I was not aware of that. Shall try that feature next time when I have something to compare.

I guess the 2-3 tools given on this site are not Unicode compatible, so the separate each code and then compare. That is not useful.

Thanks.

You can also try the free CS Diff http://www.componentsoftware.com/produc ... /index.htm
I use it for comparing .doc files, but I've never tried it for .docx.
