Hi,

There is a function called LENGTH OF data-item, but this results the value as the length declared in working storage section.
Ex:
working-storage declared as

01 a pic x(10)

move 'ABCD' to a

LENGH OF A - it gives the value of 10

if you want the output as 4 means you need to use the INSPECT.
