In Microsoft Word 2003, it was possible to store different Versions of a Document inside the Document itself (File -> Versions.. or check here -> Chapter Implementing Versions). Somehow, I'm missing this feature in 2010. Is it still available or was that feature kicked out of Word?

Sorry to have to bring you the bad news, but it's been a while since MS did away with this feature. In the recent releases of Word, the only such option is for recovery if word crashes in between; in this case you can go to: [File -> Info -> Versions] to access the unsaved work.

Is there a reason why this feature got removed? – gsharp Mar 1 '13 at 11:36
I can't really give an authoritative answer to that, but according to, this feature was discontinued due to versioning capabilities built into Microsoft SharePoint Services. – Roney Michael Mar 1 '13 at 15:13
