HOW TO FIND A WORD COUNT OR A CHARACTER COUNT IN WORD DOCUMENT
As one would expect, Microsoft Word includes a feature to count the words in a document; it also includes the ability to count the characters. Knowing the character count of a document is important for any business owner. For example, as a freelance writer your client may have specific character counts they want you to obtain; for other business owners, perhaps the contact form for your client is character-count specific. When you need to check the character count in Microsoft Word, you can do so in the same way you check the word count.
1. Open the document in Word that you want to count the characters in.
2. Click the /”Review/” tab.
3. Click /”Word Count/” in the Proofing section. The Word Count window opens and displays the numbers of characters in the document with and without spaces.
4. Click /”Close/” to close the Word Count window.
Alternatively, you can also click the /”Words/” entry at the bottom of your Word document to display the Word Count window.
