FWIW I did some tests with Word and with the exception of number of pages Word got identical counts on all items including words, characters with and without spaces, paragraphs and lines. Word looks like it might be ignoring in its counting the blank pages that are inserted between sections with odd and even footers. Thanks for marking this as the answer.

This means that you will need to rely on a macro to get the desired word count. If you just want to know the number of words in each section of your document, the following macro can be helpful. This simply steps through each section, determines the word count in that section, and displays the summary information in a message box. This does not provide a way to dynamically insert the information in the document, but it does provide an illustration of how you can find the word count of a single section.

A variation on the technique allows you to automatically insert the word count for a specific section at the location of a bookmark within your document. Let's say that you have a bookmarked called "WordCount" that you have defined. This bookmark specifies the place where you want the number of words in the second section of your document. The following macro will determine the word count for the specified section, and then insert the text at the location of the bookmark. The macro could be easily called from other macros, such as one that runs when the document is opened, saved, or printed.

That way the word count would be updated at all the normal times when a field is automatically updated. WordTips is your source for cost-effective Microsoft Word training. Microsoft Word is the most popular word processing software in the world.
