Counting spaces in notepad

I need to put some spaces into a notepad document and do a count of how many there are, can anyone advise how i can do this?

Could you not copy/paste into Word and do it there? That will give you a character count and, I believe, by inference a space count as I think the way the Word word counter works is to count spaces between words.

yes - that would work.
Thanks, i can see the word count in word but not character count.

Go to Tools, Word Count and what you get back is word count, character count with spaces, character count without spaces, paragraphs and lines.
