Tried to copy and paste sections of an 8mb Word doc with track changes turned
on.
The track changes did not copy into the new doc. This is Office 2003.

Turn off Track Changes in the recipient document, Paste the text with
tracked changes in it, and turn Track Changes back on.

You are copying from one document to another? You will need to spike the
sections you are copying:

Open a copy of the original document. Ensure that Track Changes is turned
off on both documents. Ctrl+F3 to 'copy' the section containing track
changes (the section disappears), go to your new document and position your
mouse. Ctrl+Shft+F3 will then paste the text, with track changes, into the
new document.

No, you don't need to "spike"; you can do it with either Copy (or Cut)
and Paste, or by Drag'n'Drop. You just need to turn off Track Changes
in the recipient document.

It is unclear how the spike is relevant to the OP's question.

I am reading that the doc(s) contain track changes. A normal paste will of
course either mark all text as added (if track changes is on) or accept
changes on paste if track changes off.

However, OP should also check that he does not have 'Disable features
introduced after word 97' ticked under Tools, Save, since he is using Office
2003. I have found in our office setting that this certainly can affect how
track changes behaves, as well as other things such as ToC and Tables.
