     This is a complete word counter that counts ANY FORMAT like word, excel, txt, csv, xls etc. It counts for Char with or without spaces, word count and linecount. It pretty easy and it counts without the use of Split() function. It uses the word object from the microsoft word 11.0 object library so need referencing. I haven't included exporting but you can at least copy to the line count. The good thing with this one, is that you can simultaneously count up to 500 files plus. I really don't know the maximum limit but it'll depend on the system memory i think. This is good for the transcriptionist industry. Hope this helps to some!!! If you have any suggestions on how I can improve this, just let me know.

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
