if i understand correctly, i think all you need to do is use the "length ( )" function... or are you trying to subtotal the different categories (e.g. spaces, letters, numbers, etc)? to do that i think you would nest the "filter ( )" function inside the length function and specify the criteria needed for each type. hope that helps...
Thank you John. I've used the Lenth() function in a much more complicated manner previously and just didn't think of it this way.
