    Someone gave me a Word document that I need to use as a model. I
    started deleting old values, and it just created crossed-out blue
    versions. I saved my document and opened it and still have the
    history.

    My Word is up-to date Word for Windows. How do I turn off this
    history bit?

    Why are you posting a question about Word in an XP group? Word is NOT part
    of Windows and never has been.

    Word news group:
    Via Web:
    http://www.microsoft.com/communitie...efault.aspx?dg=microsoft.public.word.newusers

    In your newsreader:
    news://msnews.microsoft.com/microsoft.public.word.newusers

    And when you do post you need to provide the exact version of Word you have.
    "Up-to date Word for Windows" is meaningless. If you don't know the version
    do Help-About (unless you have 2007 when it's Office Button>Word
    Options>Resources)

    Sorry - I missed in my newsreader. One row down.

    Office 2007 changed the rules from Windows standards. I learned how
    Windows worked, I knew where to find my version, and then in Office
    2007, Microsoft moved the Help-About. I suppose they must have had
    a reason.

    Right click the status line of Word 2007. It's one of the options.
