WD2000: DOCERR: "Characters (with Spaces)" Displays Incorrect Total in Word Count

Article ID: 249198

Article Last Modified on 11/6/2002



APPLIES TO

  • Microsoft Word 2000 Standard Edition



This article was previously published under Q249198

SYMPTOMS

When you use the Word Count feature (on the Tools menu, click Word Count) in a Microsoft Word document, the Characters (with spaces) count may appear to be incorrect.

This problem occurs when you use any of the following in the document:

  • Tab stops
  • Line breaks
  • Section breaks


CAUSE

This functionality is by design. However, Microsoft Word Help incorrectly states the following about Word Count:

Displays the number of characters in the active document, including spaces. Character count doesn't include the following characters: tabs, line breaks, paragraph marks, page breaks, column breaks, section breaks, and hidden text.


STATUS

Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed at the beginning of this article.

MORE INFORMATION

Microsoft Word 2002 Help correctly states the following about Word Count:

Displays the number of characters in the active document, including spaces and tabs. Character count doesn't include the following characters: line breaks, paragraph marks, page breaks, column breaks, section breaks, and hidden text.
