Checking a Document
Several notorious incidents have occurred in which a publicly released Word document
disclosed embarrassing information. It doesn’t take an Office whiz to discover the name of the
document creator and, in fact, it’s pretty easy to snoop in a file to find hidden text or even
text that has been deleted during editing—especially with documents in the Word 97–2003
Document (.doc) format.
To prevent information in your document from becoming tabloid fodder, on the Info tab
in Backstage view click Check For Issues, Inspect Document. Doing so opens the
Document Inspector dialog box, in which you select the types of personal information you want
to expunge. (For more information about each of these categories, see w7io.com/10902 .)
Make your selections and click Inspect, whereupon you’ll see the inspection results, as
shown in Figure 9-12.
