Unexpected RSID Root changes RRS feed


  • Hi cinchbald,

    >>The only explanation that I can think of is that, when a new version of Word is installed, it does not retain the same templates but imports the properties of the old templates into new templates which themselves have new RSID roots. Any ideas<<

    No. "rsidRoot" element specifies the revision save ID which was associated with the first editing session for this document. [Note: This information must be identical between any number of copies of the same document, as they all originate from the same original editing session. Applications can use this information as desired. end note]

    You can get more detail about this from link below:
    RsidRoot Class

    And here is an helpful blogs about RSIDs for your reference:

    What’s up with all those “rsids”?

    If you still have problem about Office file formats, I suggest that you reopen a new thread in forum below:
    Office XML, ODF, and Binary File Formats

    The reason why we recommend posting appropriately is you will get the most qualified pool of respondents, and other partners who read the forums regularly can either share their knowledge or learn from your interaction with us.

    Thanks for your understanding.
