Comparing documents

If you need to compare two documents, you can use Document Builder. The steps below will show you how to do it:

  1. Create the compare.docbuilder script file with the following code:

    var file = builderJS.OpenTmpFile("");
    AscCommonWord.CompareDocuments(Api, file, null);
    builder.SaveFile("docx", "Result.docx");

    where - the path to the first file for comparing, - the path to the second file for comparing.

  2. Send the POST request to https://documentserver/docbuilder with the following body in the JSON format:

        "async": false,
        "url": ""

    where - the path to the .docbuilder script.

  3. Once the document generation is ready, the response with the absolute URL to the output file of document comparing will be returned:

       "key": "Khirz6zTPdfd7",
        "urls": {
            "Result.docx": "https://documentserver/Result.docx"
        "end": true
  4. Download the document from the received link. Now you can check all the document differences and accept or reject them using the corresponding buttons on the top toolbar.
