You need to know how many times each word occurs in the passage. Very Happy

The question is, how can you know the word count in the passage?

Good luck dude!

This is a very simple challenge when combined with a bit of programming.

I would advise saving the passage of text into a long string and then using a MID function to define where each word is then added into an array. Then it's just making it count each occurance.
