The report should be a maximum of 2,500 words for the main body (including within-text references and tables you have created) of the report (not including contents page, footnotes, executive summary, appendices, bibliography, tables imported from elsewhere) .
If you create big tables or tables containing a lot of numerical information, I would advise you to place it in an appendix to conserve words in your word count.
