This article describes how to add the Comment pane feature to a document in Microsoft Office Word 2003 and in Microsoft Word 2002.
By default, Word 2003 and Word 2002 do not include the Comment pane feature. Instead, these versions of Word include the Reviewing pane. However, you can run a macro to include the Comment pane feature in Word 2003 and in Word 2002. To do this, follow these steps:
Use the following code to create a macro:
If (ActiveDocument.Comments.Count > 0) Then ActiveDocument.ActiveWindow.View.SplitSpecial = wdPaneCommentsEnd If
Open a Word document that contains comments.
Run the macro that you created in step 1 to display the Comment pane.
