Per the manuals, I think it should work:

Code:
)SET PARTLEN = &LENGTH(&PARTLEVE) 
)SET PARTLEN = (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21,22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29,
1, 52, 53, 54, 55, 56, 57, 58,59,60, 61, 62, 63, 64, 65, 66, 67,68)                                                       
--   PART LEN = &PARTLEN   
FTINCL  ABCDE       
ISPF105  - Output overflow                                       
Line to be written greater than data set LRECL (80), ABCDE record-139

I expect &LENGTH to determine the size of a character string and for my variable PARTLEN to be set to that length. It does not seem to do much of anything.

Has anyone used it before?

I believe that you must use )SETF to set variables to the output of extended functions.
