Check for number of characters in a excel row

I have a row in an excel sheet called NUMBER. I’m using a for each and if statement to check every cell in the row and if that cell only has 7 characters or 5 then it will execute. How would i write the if statment? (if row.(“NUMBER”).ToString.contains 5 characters?)

I’d write:

row(0).ToString.Length = 5 or row(0).ToString.Length = 7

The 0 refers to Column A, you can change it to 1 for Column B, etc. or much better if the data table has headers and you can refer to them by name like
