Word 2013 provides a feature for easily merging a document with multiple versions. It is useful when multiple users work on document that may be combined later. When combiniing the document versions all changes are highlighted and you can easily see what was changed in each version.

To combine multiple document versions use the following.

Step 1

Open the document that you want to combine with other versions.
