Can I insert "Word Count" into Office Document?

I need to insert the word count 'Statistics' into the actual MS Word document. Does anyone know how to do this?

Insert/Field and select "numwords"

Thank you VoG, i've learnt something today I never knew i could do, but, what I am trying to do (as i've seen this done on the original that i'm typing from) is the actual box (as it is displayed in 'tools' and then 'word count')has been inserted at the end of the document. This displays word count, paragraphs, lines, etc.

I think that you will need to use a macro to achieve what you want click here

Thank you. I managed to create a macro (not very easy!) and i've managed to display it when i want to, yet not able to print it as part of the document. Right now, my brain is pretty fried so i'm going to leave it for now and perhaps i can figure out something later. thank you very much for your help

...Tools - Word Count. When the box appears, hold down Alt and press Print Screen. You can the paste an image of the statistics at the cursor position. If want just the grey area with the statistics use the crop tool.

Just a thought.... you do realize that when you add in your data that you will also add an extra paragraph, extra lines and extra words making the data that you are entering into your document out of date.

Of course, if you are only counting the words in a thesis and do not count the words on the title page, etc then this will not apply.

As I said, it was just a thought.

As a further thought, if you have a document that does this then the VBA code must be there (I think?). Open the document then ALT+F11 to open the VB Editor. On the left hand pane expand the document's stuff (click on the + sign) and then double click on Modules. Unless the VB code is password protected you should be able to see how it is done.
