Determining the lenght of data during a select operation


Is it possible to determine the length of data during a select operation.

I want to check whether the length of IFSC code ie BANKL field's data is not equal to 11 characters.

Is there a way to check it in the select statement.

    You could try something like below

    SELECT count( * )

    fROM mara INTO count

    where ernam like '____'.

    This gives the number of records in mara with ernam of length 4 ie/('_' stand for 1 character. So for length 4 i used 4 '_'')
