Program Word to Identify the Last Person Who Reviewed a Memo

BY STANLEY ZAROWIN

Q In our firm, various partners frequently review client memos, and it would be very useful if we could identify the last person on the network who worked on the document. Is there a way to do that?

 

A Yes, both Word 2003 and 2007 can do it. In Word 2007, open the Ribbon’s Insert tab and position the insert point where you want the latest name inserted, and in the Text group click on Quick Parts and then on Field. In Word 2003 select Field from the Insert menu.

 

Then, in the Categories list, select Document Information and choose LastSavedBy from the Field names list and Title case in the Format list and click OK (see screenshot below).
