Length of credit history

How long would you say you need to have your oldest account open to fall under the "Great" category of "length of credit history"? My oldest account is a credit card and this is showing to be 6 years and 11 months old.

Re: Length of credit history

YMMV. It varies per person based on their scoring bucket. For example, someone just starting out in credit with no negative accounts might see a "Great" indicator within the Length of History at a few years. Conversely, mine was "very Good" at 13 years with lots of accts reporting.
