Counting a Document's Words, Pages, Lines, and Characters

Often, you need to count the words, characters, lines, paragraphs, or pages in your document. For example, in creating your document, you might have been given a word limit you aren't permitted to exceed. To get an accurate estimate of your document's current size, choose Tools, Word Count. Word reads your document and displays the Word Count dialog box (see Figure 5.12).
