How many words are there in your document?
Let’s say you have been asked to write a blog or an article for a newsletter, and the editor wants the piece to be about 400 words. As you are writing the piece, how do you know how many words you have? Get Word to count them for you, using it’s Word Count feature.
In Word 2007 and later, have a look at the status bar, which is at the very bottom of the Word window. Do you see an entry like Words: 154? If so Word Count is turned on and you have 154 words in document. If you don't see Words: on the status bar, right-click on the status bar and select Word Count to turn on the feature.
In Word 2003, click on the Tools menu then select Word Count. A small window appears showing you the number of words in the document. You can't work on your document with this window open so if you want to frequently get the current count, click on the Show Toolbar button in the Word Count window. A small toolbar appears. Click on the Recount button any time you want the current word count.
Any questions, please let me know.
