I provided two different ways to do this. The normal way is to use a self-join relationship, and the Count() function to count how many records match a given word. The other way uses the GetSummary() function in combination with a summary field.

I added some new fields and created relationships to show both methods.

Uh, yeah, this is basically the same thing. Probably should delete one.

If every record can have only one value in this field, the natural FileMaker way to count this would be to make a summary report. To do it you need to make a layout with "subsummary when sorted by [the field]", add a summary field to count records, sort records by this field, and then print them out. FileMaker has a wizard to do such reports; it starts when you add a new layout. Do you need more detailed instructions on how to make such a report?
