Just created my first brute account when I received an email tagged as Important. The email says:

Thanks

So do I have to make another file for the new version? Ofcourse NO. MS Word has this feature called "versioning". One file will contain all the versions and will increase the file size.

To apply versioning on your Word document, follow these steps:

1. Choose Versions from the File menu.
2. Click the Save Now button to save the version of the document. Word saves the author and datetime of the version. You can also add some comments to each version.

To open other version of the word document.

1. Choose Versions from the File menu.
2. Select the version you want to open then the Open button. It will be open in a separate window.
3. If you want to save the current version on another file, click Save As.. from File menu.
