Hi @seemak ,

 

You can try a custom column with the following code:

 

List.Count(Text.Split([categoryColumn], ","))

Thank you so much Pete, it worked , but we need to remove the +1

I created the custom column      List.Count(Text.Split([Cuisines],",")) and it worked perfectly

Ah, yes.

I got confused with something else I was doing counting delimiters.

I'll amend my original answer so it's correct for future viewers.
