    Count Characters (XP)

    Is it possible to count the number of times a character appears in a cell?

    Example: Looking for how many times the decimal point is in the cell
    Cell A1 = Part.123.765.4

    In this case, the result would be 3.

    Thanks,
    John

    Try this:
    <code>
    =LEN(A1)-LEN(SUBSTITUTE(A1,".",""))</code>
