I'm not using a US version of Office so the items are a little uncertain.

Open one of the docs,
in the Functions menu choose Merge and Compare or anything that resembles this,
choose the file to be compared against,
in the bottom right you should be able to choose something like 'Compare only'
Press OK and a new document should show the differences.

Before you do all this, start the macroeditor to get the code.
