Hi,

I need to reduce the titles on our website to 60 characters and have the facility to export all titles in a csv file to import into excel.

Does anyone know of a facility in Excel which can filter out a list of cells/rows which have 60 or more characters.

thanks in advance.

You could do a count in a spare column, e.g.

=LEN(A2)

and then filter/sort by that column

I don't know how to filter with just that column, but if you can put a column in which counts the length of the cell

=LEN(CellReference)

Then you could easily sort and filter out anything larger than 60.
