split function

"text = "Mary had a little lamb"

Using the statement "wordcount = UBound(Split(text, " ")) + 1"

to get a wordcount for a document. Can the split function be used further to put the words into an array by using the single space as a divider?

    The Split function already returns an array.
    What you need is to assign the returned array to a variable so you can manipulate it, eg:

    Dim x As Variant
    x = Split(text, " ")

    Now you can access the array with x(1), x(2), etc.
