How to count the number of characters in a cell

How to count the number of characters in a cell

How to count the number of characters in a cell

(OP)
As part of a visual basic program I need to count the number of characters used in a cell. For example, if cell A1 in a workbook contains the text: How are you today?, the function or macro should give: function(A1) equals 15.
Thank yo in advance for your help.

RE: How to count the number of characters in a cell

You could use the Len() function, but the value that is returned for "How are you today?" will be 18.  This is because spaces are counted as characters.
