    word count (2000)

    Is there a way to keep word count constantly visible and updating as you type? I constantly need to know how many words I have typed.
    Regards

    I think someone posted some code once for printing this to the Status Bar very often, perhaps by connecting a macro to the spacebar? Try searching the Word and VB/VBA boards and see if you can find that discussion.

    This is a standard feature of Word 2007. See here for the details. Could you consider upgrading?
