Hello everyone!

Does anyone have a simple but elegant document management system already
setup in MS Word?

I am working with Word 97 (not my first choice), and I have a set of about
15 chapters (some more than 30 pages long) that are constantly being
updated, changed, cut, and pasted. These 15 core chapters then must be
adapted for about 5 different versions of the same application, which are
being customised for different business sectors. So each version of the
application will have its own specialised features that also have to be
documented and included.

Any suggestions on how to keep track of the most up-to-date versions of the
same files for the different applications in Word 97? Also, of course, I
still have to print out the documents for the User Manuals. Is there a
simple method for doing that? I do have access to a server to store all
the files, etc.

Thanks a lot for all your advice and suggestions.
