I need some small tool to get document statistics able to count characters/words also in the embedded objects like text-boxes in Word. Standard Word tool does not count characters in the text-boxes and may show you "0" when you have several pages of charts etc.
The tool must be small. (Not Trados! I know it can do it. But who will install such a big package for just one task?!)

Anycount could be the answer Oct 15, 2008

Sergej,

IMHO, if You have only one task to perform, I think Anycount is the best, since there is a free 30-days period and it is downloadable from the site.


http://www.anycount.com/



All the best,

успехи

Count textboxes Oct 15, 2008

Hi Sergei,

Paste the following code to Tools->Macros->Visual Basic Editor and then go to Tools->Macros-->Macros to run TxtBoxWcount

This program counts all texts in the text boxes.


Sub TxtBoxWCount()
Dim aShape As Shape, N As Integer, charsCount As Long
For Each aShape In ActiveDocument.Shapes
If aShape.Type = msoGroup Then
For N = 1 To aShape.GroupItems.Count
If aShape.GroupItems(N).TextFrame.HasText Then
charsCount = charsCount + aShape.GroupItems(N).TextFrame.TextRange.Characters.Count
End If
Next
Else
If aShape.TextFrame.HasText Then
charsCount = charsCount + aShape.TextFrame.TextRange.Characters.Count
End If
End If
Next
MsgBox "The wordcount in all textboxes is" & charsCount, vbInformation, "textbox Word Count"
End Sub

PractiCount works well for this (and many other file formats).
