WD: Readability Statistics Incorrect or Missing


The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft Word for Windows, versions 2.0, 2.0a, 2.0a-CD, 2.0b, 2.0c, 6.0, 6.0a, 6.0c
  • Microsoft Word for Windows 95, version 7.0
  • Microsoft Windows 3.1


The readability statistics displayed after Word has completed a grammar check may be incorrect, display zeros, or not display at all.


The following are possible reasons for the statistics being incorrect or not displaying:

  • The text being checked was formatted for all caps using CTRL+A, SHIFT+F3, or by choosing the All Caps effect in the Format Font dialog (Format Character dialog in Word versions 2.x).
  • The text being checked is a one-line paragraph with no punctuation mark at the end of the sentence.
  • The text has been formatted for "No proofing" in the Tools Language dialog (Format Language dialog in Word version 2.x).
  • Readability statistics will be incorrect if Caps Lock was on while the document was typed.

Word 2.x

  • The entire text being grammar checked is formatted for superscript or subscript (raised/lowered) character formatting. This is not a problem if only part of the text is formatted as superscript or subscript.
