Hi,

I have a table with 12 columns and 800 odd rows, each row only has one value in it situated in any of the 12 columns. Most of the values are made up of multiple parts (eg =45+56 or =12+89+13 etc) and so I have a formula to find how many parts are in each non-blank cell.

The formula is [=LEN(Frmula)-LEN(SUBSTITUTE(Frmula,"+",""))+1] the "Frmula" being an XLM 4 macro to turn the cell to the left into a text string which allows the Len and Substitute formulas to return the number of plus signs in the cell.

Is it possible to find the non-empty cell in the row and then apply the above formula to it to return the number of parts in the cell?

For example, if the only value in the table row is in column 3, then i need a formula to find that the only value in the row is in column 3 and then imbed my formula above to return the result i am looking for.

I was thinking of using a Match/Index function, but I'm not sure how i can imbed my formula to produce the result.

Cheers
