    Is there a way to count the number of occurrences of a word in MS Word?

    If not, is there a downloadable text editor or something that can do such a thing?

    Thanks.

    Replace the Word with something like QQQ .. or the the original word .. And it will tell you how many.
    Then you can replace it back to what it was ... or just don't save the edited file.
    be sure to include the spaces before n after the search word.

    It just occurred to me that this there will be a problem if the word is the first in the sentence .. or followed by a period or comma ??
    The spaces were an attempt to make sure it was an individual word and not a part of a larger word.
