A search for light curves with variability in the NSVS data was carried out in a 46 square-degree area in Andromeda. The field contains 51955 light curves. We found 136 variables, 86 of them were not known previously. Extrapolating the density of the variables in the field to the whole NSVS, the total number of variables in the survey is estimated to be 52000 - 61000.
