    Hi everyone, I have a document with tracked changes and comments, but the PC that the reviewer was using didn't add the person's name, just a alphanumeric that doesn't mean anything.

    First off, I already did this, and it worked: http://superuser.com/questions/51057/how-to-change-the-name-of-a-reviewer-in-word but.. it didn't change the name where there were comments.

    Also I found this (from Anne) but it's for an old version of Word. Not sure if this can be done in the current version? http://www.officearticles.com/word/change_previous_author_in_microsoft_word.htm

    I can't help, but have to ask: why would you even want to do this? What's the point?
