Support for Basic Version Management Tasks

P4OFC helps everyday users to:

  • Check files in and out of Perforce from within Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Project
  • Determine which version of a document is checked out and who else is working on it
  • Access complete document revision history
  • Share and lock documents through Perforce
  • Link change requests with document changes

Quickly Compare Two Versions of the Same Word Document

P4OFC is easy to install and adds a "Perforce" menu to Microsoft Office applications. Once installed, the plug-in automatically determines which documents are under Perforce control.

P4OFC can compare any two revisions of the same Word document and quickly show changes, using Microsoft Word's Track Changes feature.
