In Microsoft Word 2007, I'd like the 'Word Count' feature to just count the words/characters in a specific part of the document automatically.

I know that if I highlight a specific section, it will count just the highlighted.

But is there a way for it to count all the words in the document from a specific point on?

Do you have anything against placing the cursor at the desired location and pressing Ctrl + Shift + End and then just looking in the status bar?
