The Grpcpy.doc file, which is included with the Windows NT Server 4.0 Resource Kit, Supplement Two, cannot be read if you use WordPad to open it.


Grpcpy.doc was saved in Microsoft Word 95 format before the tracked editing changes were accepted. The document still contains both the deleted text (which appears in strikethrough format) and the inserted text (which appears in underlined format). WordPad does not support tracked editing changes, and it cannot distinguish between deleted text and inserted text.

Use one of the following methods to make the document easier to read.

  • Open Grpcpy.doc in Microsoft Word 95 or later, accept the editing changes, and then save the document. For more information on tracking editing changes, see the Microsoft Word documentation or Help.


  • Open Grpcpy.doc in WordPad, and then manually delete the text that appears in strikethrough format.
