Default Count repetitive words

How do I count the number of repetitive words?
Is there a way I can pick a particular word to look for?

Well you can use find and replace to find the word and replace it with the
same word. You can also use an Add-In that I created to do this sort of
thing:

Great tool! How can I make it diferentitate between CAPITAL versions of a
word and non? For instance it versus IT.

Well that gets pretty gnarly ;-)

You could revise the code as follows:

Change:
SingleWord = Trim(LCase(aWord))
To:
SingleWord = Trim(aWord)
Change:
If SingleWord "a" Or SingleWord "z" Then
SingleWord = "" 'Out of range?
NonWordObjects = NonWordObjects + 1 '
End If
To:
If SingleWord "A" Or SingleWord "z" Or Asc(SingleWord) 90 And
Asc(SingleWord) 97 Then '= "[" Or SingleWord = "]" Then
SingleWord = "" 'Out of range?
NonWordObjects = NonWordObjects + 1 '
End If

But that would count "it" "IT" and "It" as three separatar words. I
haven't taken the time to figure out how to process the first word of a
sentence or how they should be counted. They are all in fact the same word
;-)

Greg,

LOL! That sounds like me doing a macro and well I am not good at that.
IT as in Information Technology and it are different words. Especially in a
CV!
Thanks for your help though.

You can use Find for this. In the Find dialog, check the box for "Match
Case." Then select "Highlight all items found" and click Find All. Word will
tell you how many it found (and they will be selected).
