Blog Post created by fhunth Champion on Aug 3, 2015

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"
