Is it possible to count how many times a single word occurs in a MS word document. For example, if I wanted to count all instances of the word 'apples' in a document, is there a way to do it?

I've tried scouring MS Office help but without any success (no surprise there I guess).

Hi Floydoid.
Outside of a macro, the easiest way is to just open the .doc in Word then click Edit>Find.
Type the word you're looking for in the "Find What" box and put a checkmark in the "Highlight all items found" option. Click the "Find All" button. Above the buttons, word will give you the number of times the matching criteria (the word) was found.
