public void UpdateWordCount()

UpdateWordCount recalculates and updates Characters, Words and Paragraphs properties in the BuiltInDocumentProperties collection of the Document.

Console.WriteLine("Characters: {0}", doc.BuiltInDocumentProperties.Characters);
Console.WriteLine("Words: {0}", doc.BuiltInDocumentProperties.Words);
