Using the find option we can search a word in a word document and find how many times the word appears in the document. However, I have 120 words to search in 50 separate documents. It takes a lot of time to find 120 words manually. Is there any quick way in word or excel to do this?

Hi @jhaider2020 ,

I think InfoRapid Search & Replace might be worth having a closer look at:
