    Sorting or filtering table by text length...How? (2000)

    I have a large list of names I am working with. I would like to sort or filter the names by character length to help me eliminate many of the less common 2 and 3 letter names. I would like the ability to delete some of those names directly from the result, would this be a filter by form command?

    Thanks

    Make a new query.
    Put the Name field in the first column.
    Put Len([Name Field]) in the second column.
    Now you can sort or filter on the second column.
