Novel word count and manuscript count differ

when I click on the manuscript target I get a certain word count. If I do the statistics option and look at compile documents and I have a collection of all my scenes. When I look at the word count from this group the number is larger than the manuscript target word count by about 1500 words. I am not sure why that is occurring. Does anyone know why there would be a disconnect between the manuscript target word count and the statistics word count. I’m using toolbar icons for both of these.??

In short : there is a bug with the “compiled” tab of the statistics panel in the Windows version. It counts everything. Even documents excluded from compile.

You will find the details and a workaround close to the end of this thread :
