Functions in SQL query

Hello Xperts,

I need to write a select query which will give me the length of the string value stored in the field.

At present I have to read all values from the table and then loop at each value into workarea to find length of each field.

Is there any alternative to this? I am querying a table with more than 300K records and I do not want to loop at 300K records to find the desired field.

Any help is highly appreciated.

    loop at itab assigning <fs>.
    assign components sy-index of structure <fs> to <fs_fied>.
    find string length...
