Introduction

This article describes the Office XP issue that is fixed in the proofing tools update for the Office XP post-Service Pack 3 hotfix package that is dated November 18, 2004.

Issues that the hotfix package fixes

This hotfix package fixes the following issue that was not previously documented in a Microsoft Knowledge Base article:
  • When you determine the readability statistics of your document, the Flesch Reading Ease value may be different from a manually calculated value.

    To determine the readability statistics of your document, follow these steps:
    1. On the Tools menu, click Options.
    2. On the Spelling & Grammar tab, click to select the Show readability statistics check box, and then click OK.
    3. On the Tools menu, click Spelling and Grammar.
    To manually calculate the Flesch Reading Ease value of your document, follow these steps:
    1. Count the number of words in the document.
    2. Count the number of syllables in the document.
    3. Count the number of sentences in the document.
    4. Calculate the average sentence length (ASL) value. To do this, divide the number of words in the document by the number of sentences in the document.
    5. Calculate the average number of syllables per word (ASW) value. To do this, divide the number of syllables in the document by the number of words in the document.
    6. Use the following formula to calculate the Flesch Reading Ease value of your document:
      Flesch Reading Ease = 206.835 - (1.015 X ASL) � (84.6 X ASW)
