  • Hello Irakli,

    Thanks for posting! As I understand, do you mean about the Compare Document Feature from Word Ribbon Review tab->Compare group->Compare button?

    Based on my understanding, the Open XML SDK is supposed to manipulate underlying Open XML Format file content. It cannot be used to directly call into the Word's UI function. If you mean about using the SDK to implement your own comparing logics, you can use Open XML SDK to retrieve the whole content of the Word document. (http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en/oxmlsdk/thread/90ceb304-bf05-40a3-81fc-6ddfabe2eb9a). But it depends on your requirment to implement the compare and UI. That should not be a question in OpenXML SDK side.

  • Hello Ji

    Yes I mean Implement Fuctionality of "Compare Document Feature from Word Ribbon Review tab->Compare group->Compare button" using Open XML SDK.

    GenerateCompearedDocumet(String document1path,String documetn2path) => and result combined document like it does MS Word.

    Is it Incuded in SDK Already. Or it need to invite bicyle and write it from srach ?

    In MS Word I Undestand that could be quite complicated document comparation algorithm, but if you share it for us (to Open XML SDK Developer) it will be very grate.

     

    Thank you in Advance.
