The length( function counts the number of characters in a text value (also called a string).
This function has one parameter:
text – The item of text you want to know the length of.
The length( function counts the number of characters in a string. The result is an integer. If the string is empty, the result will be zero.
length("abc") ☞ 3 length("") ☞ 0 length(1234) ☞ 4 length("Ⓒ") ☞ 1
Note: The length returns the number of characters, not the length in bytes. For ASCII characters these are the same, but for many Unicode characters this will be different. For example, in the final example above the character count is 1, but the actual number of bytes is 2. For most applications the actual number of bytes is unimportant.
length( function must have one (and only one) parameter. – Variations like
length("abc","def") are not allowed.
