Greetings from Japan! I was born and raised in Michigan where I started studying Japanese in high school. I moved to Japan in 2005 and I have no intention of returning to America except to visit. I love America, but I love Japan.

I'm into photography and Japanese calligraphy when I have the time. I play the bass guitar regularly though I am still a beginner.

comment Selecting an exact number of words in Word 2007
Yeah, sorry about the lack of information in my original question. Here is a simple example: {0>第6章<}100{>Chapter 6<0} What should be a word count of 2 is 14. The tags are formatted as subscripts if that makes a difference. The reason I thought this would be possible (without writing hundreds of lines of code) is that the word count function in Word has a line for Non-Asian characters that always gives the correct count.

comment Selecting an exact number of words in Word 2007
Thank you for your response. I ran the macro and it did what it was supposed to, but it seems this method will only work for files that have nothing but English in them. When I use files that have both Japanese and English in them, it counts the Japanese characters (in groups), as well as the tags used by the translation program. Sentences are formatted like this: {0>Japanese text<}0{>English text<0}. Obviously this could become overly complicated, so what about limiting the selected text to a certain font?
