#### Pivot Tables - Count Numbers vs. Count

```What is the diffence between "Count Numbers" and "Count" in Pivot Tables?  I
am finding that "Count Numbers" in Pivot tables is like "Count" in formulas,
and "Count" in Pivot tables is like "CountA" in formulas.

Is this true?

How do I perfom a character count in a single cell in Excel?
I need to peform a character count for certain cells in Excel. I found a formula for counting words within a cell but not the number of specific characters. If you count spaces as a character, you can use directly the function LEN. If you don't want the spaces to count, use something like: =LEN(SUBSTITUTE(A1," ","")) Hope this helps, Miguel.
