Default Word 2002 view two documents at the same time

Does anyone know how I can view and work on two documents
at the same time on a single screen? I thought this
could be done with the documents side by side. If not,
can it be done with one at the top of the screen and the
other doc at the bottom? I would appreciate any help you
could give to me.

If the "Windows in task bar" box in the Tools Options View dialog
is not checked, you can use Window Arrange All to place the
documents top and bottom. If you want them side by side, you can drag
the edges to do that, or use the macro in

If that check box is checked, you'll get each document in a complete
Word window. Then you need to right-click the task bar and choose
either Tile Vertically or Tile Horizontally.

In Word 2003 (and possibly Word 2002 as well), open both documents and then,
in one of them, from the Window menu choose Compare Side by Side With... and
choose your other document.
