Cleaning up personal information from Office documents.

Pickup any Office document ( Word , Excel, Powerpoint ) which was sent across to you & have a look at the properties. You could be amazed with the details you find.

In some documents you receive you will find details of persons who originally wrote the document, over a period of time it was changed hands & the new author simply edited it & sent it across as his or her own work.


Cleanup the properties before sending the file across.

Office 2007 & 2010 have a built-in feature which can be found under

File > Info > Check for Issues > Inspect Document.

This is NOT a new Feature.

For office 2003 / 2002 ( XP ), you have to download & use an add-on. Available here.
