Hi, Is it possible to have a way to trace who updated a particular file (word or excel etc) in windows 2003 ? Can auditing AD objects solve this ? Thanks and regards, Leo

Hello,

I believe you can use the “Track Changes” option in “Tools”, however, you would have needed to set this option in advance of the changes, of course. Hope this helps.

    I know this is basic - have you looked at the file properties (right-click on the file) and then click Summary and look in the Origin section?
