To reuse that macro and extend it to work on multiple files would require each file to be opened and that would be fairly slow I think. An interface for deciding which files to work on would need to be implemented as well. A entirely different macro might be created to do this (perhaps using some 3rd party tool like MSXML to parse the files so that they don't need to be opened and rendered) but I don't think it would be easy.
We are implementing “cross file” capabilities for an upcoming release which will make this type of thing much easier to implement. I will recommend that we consider adding “word count” as one of the standard capabilities.
