 Count total characters in a cell
=LEN(a1)

If you need to count the total characters in a cell, you can do so using the LEN function. In the generic form of the formula above, a1 represents a cell that contains text.

In the example, the formula in the active cell is:

 
=LEN(B3)

The LEN function simply counts all characters that appear in a cell. All characters are counted, including space characters. Numbers are also counted in their raw form (i.e. number formatting is not included).
