As programs get updated, many of the programmers I write for don't highlight their Microsoft Word help document changes. This leaves me to re-compile their newest document - creating many headaches for me if the previous document needed hyperlinks and such - I then have to re-create all these again. Please let me know what suggestions you have - I'm very new to all of this.
You could start by using Word's compare feature to compare the last document with the current one, then make those changes in the online help.
After amending the help, use RH's Printed Documentation to push back out the content including your changes. That way, next time you will only have their changes for the current period without the clutter of what you had to edit the previous time.
