# LEN, LENB functions

This article describes the formula syntax and usage of the LEN and LENB functions in Microsoft Excel.

## Description

LEN returns the number of characters in a text string.

LENB returns the number of bytes used to represent the characters in a text string.

IMPORTANT: LENB counts 2 bytes per character only when a DBCS language is set as the default language. Otherwise LENB behaves the same as LEN, counting 1 byte per character.

The languages that support DBCS include Japanese, Chinese (Simplified), Chinese (Traditional), and Korean.

The xxx function syntax has the following arguments:
