Hi everyone.  I have a multi-select picklist that contains roughly 50 values.  I need to create a simple formula field that counts the number of values that were marked off in the mult-select picklist.


For instance, if two values were selected in the mult-select picklist, the value of the formula field would equal 2. 


I know this seems simple but I'm having trouble due to the field type.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

This is my first posted message so hopefully I am doing it right.

I'm trying to create a validation rule that will give an error message if there is no value picked from a multi pick list. I can't figure out how to do this. I saw an Idea on the Idea Exchange that said that we don't have this ability yet. Is there a work around that anybody knows about?
