I have a multi-line text item on a form, I have a separate text item called "word count" that should be populated with the amount of words in the multi-line text item. I need to know of a function that could count those words inside the multi-line ti. Suggestions???

Thanx
T

Hi,
U need to write a function. Remind every space separates a word. Hence number of space= number of word.
I think this logic can solve ur problem.

Thanks
Robin
