Getting a Word Count

Whether you've been asked to submit a biography of 100 words or fewer, or to write a paper no longer than 4000 words, you will appreciate Word's ability to serve up these statistics with a click of the mouse. To check the number of words in your document, choose Tools, Word Count. The Word Count dialog box, shown in Figure 2.32, appears with a word count, as well as a count of pages, characters, paragraphs and lines.

Figure 2.32. The Word Count dialog box reports the number of words in the text you've selected.
