I dont know why but m starting an essay & word count is not working. I put up a title and it counts those five words but when I start typing a paragraph it quits counting after one word and stays at 6 no matter how much I type. MS office help just says word will count aoutmaticall but that is not happening. Please help

Hi Gary,

To which word count figure do you refer? The count on the status bar, or the count produced by a NUMWORDS field?

Also, are you sure the uncounted text:
a) isn't in the header or footer
c) isn't in a footnote or endnote
c) isn't in a text box
d) isn't formatted as hidden

None of a-c get counted and d is only counted if Word is set to print hidden text.
