Delete all spaces on text to count words


I search to count word on text column with formula to multiply with a price after.

I can count characters with LEN but I can’t count word.

I have an idea with

But I need to delete all space on my text.
And the formula
SUBSTITUTE({text},” “,””) doesn’t work, spaces are still on the text.

Do you have a solution ?


The SUBSTITUTE() function in monday does not allow substitution of null strings, as you discovered.

This formula will give you the word count:

IF(TRIM({Text}), LEN( SUBSTITUTE( TRIM({Text}), " ", "XX")) - LEN( TRIM({Text})) + 1, 0)
