Windows Windows Vista will improve search functionality on a PC by letting users tag files with metadata, but those tags could cause unwanted and embarrassing information disclosure, Gartner analysts warned.

Microsofts Word's CVS

I've already seen this sort of issue in documents created with office 2003. Office has a feature that tracks changes to a document, which is turned on by default and most users don't know how it works.
So, when people send me documents I always have a look at the recorded changes. It's quite funny the sort of things that one can find in this data.

Jessta,

Thank you for the insight. Though I currently use MSO 10...or is that 2002/XP, I would like to find out more about how to better utilize the .doc format.

The general OSnews readership would probably also appreciate knowing more about in MS Office feature set (e.g. the basics of using "a feature that tracks changes to a document"), including the one you previously described.

Thank you and have a pleasant day and a Merry Christmas.
