Count Number Of Braces/<> In Excel

The post demonstrated how we could count number of braces “<>” in Excel.

I have personally seen people HTML developers struggling to perform tasks in excel that involves “<>” symbol.

We will use two simple formula in excel called LEN and SUBSTITUTE to count the pair of <>.

As shown below we have HTML code in the cell A2 and we want to count number of <> symbol


Step 1

Enter the below formula in the cell B2



So this formula works on counting the combination of “>” for each open “<” symbol.


Hope this helped.
