You don't even have to open Word to find out when a Word doc was created. Just right click on the icon or file name of the document in its folder and click on Properties.

I have no idea, nor do I wish to know....why you would want to know the precise moment you typed a particular letter within a doc. but depending on your normal speed you could would work out a rough time....maybe some one else has more knowledge than I.....

Your welcome that's what the forum is about helping where we can, does not always have to be the ins and out s of the inner working of computer.
You have ticked it as solved.Did you find the actual time???
Do come back if we can be of any further help.

The answer is there is no way in Word to do the function you are asking about. If it maintained a time stamp along with every letter documents would be huge. Just what is it you are trying to accomplish?

@bhushan, Since you don't seem to want to give a reason for your query or an example I would like to ask you this.

If a document was typed and the author was John R. Doe and later the document was accessed and the document now says John N. Doe you want to know when the change took place and what the change was. Is that correct?

I believe I know what OP wanted... and unfortunately, I believe the answer is "no".

Example: The dog is barking fiercely...

OP wanted to know if Word can show the exact date and time when each and every individual letter in the sentence (and the rest of the document) was typed.

That's what I thought too.

Hmm, since we lost the OP, we'll probably never know. But 'letter' could be like a,b,c or it could be a 'letter' he wrote to his mother. I assumed the 'latter' one.

LOL!! thats what we all said!!

I suggested he make a note of the time he saved the doc and subtract minutes( or hours!!!!) that it took him to type.
This would give him a rough timing..

Can you imagine the size (phew) if every single type of individual letter, were to be recorded!!!!!!!!as he said he wanted "say the 'M' in the word Man" doh!!!!
