Sometimes it's needed to count some characters on a string on a Nintex Workflow


This sample shows how to calculate it with 3 actions.


The used actions are:



I set a variable named myString with the value 123-1234-12345





Then I create the following variables







Firstly I count the total characters on my string using the action named "Convert Value"




Then I count the characters deleting the character you want to count ("-" (hyphen) in this case) , from the string




Then I use the action named "Math operation"




So you get the result on the variable named "myResult"
