I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

If the words were in column A starting in row 1 try this formula in B1 and copy it down.

=LEN(A1)-LEN(SUBSTITUTE(A1,",",""))+1
1
