    Excel's COUNTIF in Word

    Is there a way to do the equivalent of Excel's COUNTIF function for a column in Word?
    Essentially, I'm trying to count the number of occurrences of a specific word in each of three columns of a Word table.
    Word 2010.

    No. Word has no comparable function. Indeed, Word's table cell referencing can't detect text of any kind - only numbers. To automate what you want in Word would require a macro.
