I have a group od two digit numbers in a text file like 03 10 30 and so on.
Does anyone know of a software that will count a select number show how many there are.
If I would select 03 it would show the total number in the file.

if you are using Word or LibreOffice, use Replace '03' with '03' and it will show the number of changes made...

I mean use the Replace function in whatever word processing software you are using. If you change one expression for the same expression , you don't really change anything. But the software will return the number of times that expression was changed.
