Either count them on the screen or write a VBA program to collect the statistics. There are not so many alternatives, I'm afraid.

Would the VBA reside as a Macro or outside Word?

You can write it whereever you like and using OLE-techniques open the document.

Programming in VBA has three difficult points:
1. Programming in general.
2. The VBA language.
3. The Word collections, objects, methods and properties in particular.

Start with a few tutorials, then buy a good book about programming in Word.
