    I'm working for a mac-based non-profit and we have currently stored all group files on a shared server.

    I am currently working on a project where multiple people will need to work on a set of documents and am looking for a simple interface that would allow us to make changes/edits and not overwrite each other. Someone on another board pointed me to these resources:



    This is definitely in the right direction, but I'm wondering if there is some type of CVS system that would allow a couple of people to work on a Word document at the same time with the changes noted- or even a simple CVS interface.

    Any ideas?

    Well, I know that in Excel you can choose to "Share Workbook." But in word, there is no such option. What you can do is have several people work on individual parts and then merge thier documents together in the master document...

    You also might consider playing around with the 'Data Merge Manager', that might let you specify text cells that can be tied to a specific source, if I understand it right...
