I am in the process of compiling a Test Report from my Test Procedures.  Need to count the number of "Pass" and "Fail" strings in a huge Word file.  All my relevant results are identified by a three asterik and then "Pass" or  "Fail" occurs.  Need quick way to compute total "Pass", "Fail", and both.

Depending on your version you can simply do an advanced find for the *** pass string and find all occurences then repeat for fail or perhaps a macro like below to do it for you.

Try the following macro which looks for *** Pass and *** fail.

If necessary modify to remove space or other formatting.

Chris
Sub passfail()
Dim intpass As Integer
Dim intfail As Integer
    
    ThisDocument.GoTo What:=wdGoToPage, Which:=wdGoToNext, Name:="1"
    With ThisDocument.Content.Find
        Do While .Execute(FindText:="*** pass", Forward:=True, Format:=True, _
           MatchWholeWord:=True, MatchCase:=False)
           intpass = intpass + 1
        Loop
    End With
    ThisDocument.GoTo What:=wdGoToPage, Which:=wdGoToNext, Name:="1"
    With ThisDocument.Content.Find
        Do While .Execute(FindText:="*** fail", Forward:=True, Format:=True, _
           MatchWholeWord:=True, MatchCase:=False)
           intfail = intfail + 1
        Loop
    End With
    MsgBox "Total ""Pass"" entries =  " & intpass & vbCrLf & _
    "Total ""Fail"" entries =  " & intfail & vbCrLf & _
    "Total entries =  " & intfail + intpass

End Sub

It can't be used programatically, but you can do it quickly with a Find and Replace. Just have the same string for the Replace and for the Find part.

Find: ***Pass
Replace: ***Pass

The number of replacements is reported after the replacing is complete.
