Default Word Count

Are words such as "a", "the", "and", "or" etc. counted when the word count
option is used in the program?

Mel,

Did you try it? Yes they are.


Here is a macro that will let you exclude words:


Sub WordFrequency()

Dim SingleWord As String 'Raw word pulled from doc
Const maxwords = 9000 'Maximum unique words allowed
Dim Words(maxwords) As String 'Array to hold unique words
Dim Freq(maxwords) As Integer 'Frequency counter for Unique Words
Dim WordNum As Integer 'Number of unique words
Dim ByFreq As Boolean 'Flag for sorting order
Dim ttlwds As Long 'Total words in the document
Dim Excludes As String 'Words to be excluded
Dim Found As Boolean 'Temporary flag
Dim j, k, l, Temp As Integer 'Temporary variables
Dim IngWordCount As Long 'Total non-excluded words in document
Dim NonWordObjects As Long
Dim AllWordOjects As Long
Dim TotalWords As Long
Dim tword As String '

'Set up excluded words
'Excludes = "[pickleloaf][gruntbutter]"
'Excludes = Excludes & InputBox$("The following words are excluded by
default: " & Excludes & ". Enter additional words that you wish to exclude,
surrounding each word with [ ].", "Excluded Words", "")
Excludes = InputBox$("Enter words that you wish to exclude. Place each word
within square brackets [ ]. Example: [is][a].", "Excluded Words", "")

'Find out how to sort
ByFreq = True
Ans = InputBox$("Default sort order is word freqeuncy. To sort
alphabetically by word, type Word in the field below.", "Sort order",
"FREQ")
If Ans = "" Then End
If UCase(Ans) = "WORD" Then
ByFreq = False
End If

Selection.HomeKey Unit:=wdStory
System.Cursor = wdCursorWait
WordNum = 0
ttlwds = ActiveDocument.Words.Count
'AllWordObjects = ActiveDocument.Words.Count
'TotalWords = NonWordObjects

'Control the repeat
For Each aword In ActiveDocument.Words
SingleWord = Trim(LCase(aword))
If SingleWord "a" Or SingleWord "z" Then SingleWord = "" 'Out of range?
If SingleWord "a" Or SingleWord "z" Then NonWordObjects = NonWordObjects
+ 1
'SingleWord = Trim(aword)
'If SingleWord "A" Or SingleWord "z" Then SingleWord = "" 'Out of range?
If InStr(Excludes, "[" & SingleWord & "]") Then SingleWord = "" 'On exclude
list?
If Len(SingleWord) 0 Then
IngWordCount = IngWordCount + 1
Found = False
For j = 1 To WordNum
If Words(j) = SingleWord Then
Freq(j) = Freq(j) + 1
Found = True
Exit For
End If
Next j
If Not Found Then
WordNum = WordNum + 1

maxwords.", vbOKOnly)

'Now sort it into word order
For j = 1 To WordNum - 1

For l = j + 1 To WordNum
If (Not ByFreq And Words(l) Words(k)) Or (ByFreq And Freq(l) Freq(k))
Then k = l
Next l

tword = Words(j)
Words(j) = Words(k)
