Use Abacus SE to count lines and more in any MS Word document. Abacus will count gross lines, lines as a number of characters per line, words, or pages. It will then record the line counts in a log file which Abacus can use to create an invoice. The program offers many counting options, including headers and footers; characters that are bold, italicized, underlined, or shifted; footnotes and endnotes; and textboxes. It will count lines in a single document or in a group of documents, such as (but not limited to) an entire directory.
Abacus can also count documents prepared by other word processing programs, such as WordPerfect, as long as the documents can be opened and read in MS Word, and the user has MS Word (versions 97-2003) installed on his/her computer.
This is a trial version of Abacus SE which you may use as long as you like. However it does contain a few limitations, such as "nag" messages in your log file, and registration reminder screens. You can purchase Abacus for only $30 (single user license), and we have a site license schedule available for large groups who need multiple licenses.
