    Re: Stop Repeating Repeating Yourself (Word 97)

    Hi Frank,

    Word doesn't have an inbuilt utility for generating a word frequency report, but the thread starting at <post#=285569>post 285569</post#> has a macro that you can use to generate one.

    Don't know the answer to your second question though.

    Cheers

    Stop Repeating Repeating Yourself (Word 97)

    In several DOS wordprocessors (WordStar comes to mind), a simple "index every word" would yield a sortable list that was valuable to writers who tended to use a word too often, and then forget about it. Is there an equivalent in Word, either built-in or add-in?

    And a corrollary: The TOC, index and bibliography features in the revered DOS classic programs were kind of laughable by current standards. Publishers *always* used a ?UNIX biblio/index program, and ignored the author's efforts. In today's self-publishing world, what's the skinny? Is there a standard?

    Assume the simplest kind of Courier rag-right novel text, filed one chapter per file, no sections or other salad.

    Thanks, I'll fire up that macro.
