How to find the max length in an Excel column?
Here I introduce the method to find the max length and the relative value in Excel column.
Here is a formula that can quickly find the max length in a column.
Select a blank cell which will output the result, type this formula =MAX(LEN(A1:A63)) (A1:A63 is the range you use if you want to use a column, change it to A:A), and press Shift+ Ctrl + Enter keys together. See screenshot:
If you want to find the max length and the relative value, please do as below:
1. Type =LEN(A1) in to B1 to count the total number of characters in Cell A1, and then drag autofill handle down to get the number of characters in each cell. See screenshot:
2. Keep the formula cells selected, and click Kutools > Select > Select Cells with Max & Min Value. See screenshot:
3. In the Select Cells With Max & Min Value dialog, select Formula Cells Only in the Look in drop-down list, and check Maximum value, Cell and All cells options. See screenshot:
4. Click Ok, and the max length has been selected, and press < or > key to select the relative value.
