I did think of this but I am not certain (maybe you know?) if a Word file page count will ALWAYS equal the page count of the converted document. The process charges per Word pages so the count must be the same. I suppose I could try one or two and find out!!

If that is the case, you are in trouble. The pagination only exists once the document is open in word depending (among other things) on the choice of paper in the printer driver. So if there is an absolute precision on page count required, you have to install Word. And even then your client might get different answers than yourself.
