finding number of words in a text string

Post

     I am trying to find the number of words in a text string, is there a function for that?

     I have a long string and need to break it in two parts but I need the break to be on word boundaries so I am thinking of using the function firstpart=left(string;x) where x is say 100 and then count the number of words in firstpart then find the last word and subtracting the length of it form x. then redefining first part again
