SoDA comments in Microsoft Word

Rational SoDA uses the Microsoft Word comment feature to store the arguments it needs to extract and display information in a Rational SoDA report.

Information for Microsoft Word 2002 users

Because comments have a different appearance and different behavior in Microsoft Word 2002 than they do in Microsoft Word 2000, you use the comment feature differently in the two versions of Microsoft Word.

The Rational SoDA Help does not include Microsoft Word 2002 procedures. Therefore, if you are going to use Microsoft Word 2002 with Rational SoDA, review the Microsoft Word 2002 information in the Rational knowledge base on the Web site for IBM Customer Support for Rational software products. to get this information. The Help contains topics which provide the following information:

  • Comparison of the comment feature in Microsoft Word 2000 and Microsoft Word 2002
  • Explanation of how to delete Microsoft Word comments using the Rational SoDA interface
  • Procedure for deleting Microsoft Word 2000 comments from a Microsoft Word document
  • Description of what you do to delete a Microsoft Word 2002 comment marker in the Rational SoDA context
Information for Microsoft Word 2003 users

The behavior of comments in Rational SoDA using Microsoft Word 2003 is slightly different from Microsoft Word 2002 and similar to Microsoft Word 2000. This difference is not documented in the Help, but it is provided here.

Like Microsoft Word 2002, Microsoft Word 2003 requires Markup to be turned ON to display Microsoft Word comments (and Rational SoDA commands). However, in version 7.0 of Rational SoDA, the default Markup setting is ON and the color is white, which makes markup invisible to the user. This does not affect comment functions for normal Microsoft Word usage. In this release of Rational SoDA, the Markup value is always set to ON, and you can use the Microsoft Word Show/Hide icon to toggle the display of Rational SoDA commands. The placement of the cursor in relation to the marker is irrelevant in this version (this is different from Microsoft Word 2002).
