Default How to merge and compare documents, only comparing (importing) the tracked changes from one version

I have two documents, both initially started as the one document (approximately 1000 pages in length). One version was sent for review and comment, the other version has been continually updated by me and my colleague (all in one document at different times). Now we have received edits from the client in tracked changes.

Is there any way to show "only" these tracked changes in our updated version? In other words, we would like to not have to sort through all of the updates we have made through all of the 1000 pages, but rather only see the updates they have made as applied to our updated document. To further explain, if they did not make any updates to text, we would like that text ignored by the compare (so our edits to such text do not show up as changes between the versions).

Asking Word to unscramble this is a bit much. For all anyone knows, the client's tracked changes are to content that you've already edited. Even if it isn't, should your edits take priority over changes the client hasn't made? Moreover, what if you and your client have made different changes to the same text - whose take's priority?

Your best approach at this stage would probably to be to accept all the changes the client made in their returned document, then compare that document against yours.

Thanks for the reply, I assumed there wasn't a way, but hoped.
