I'm assuming that you mean the length of a particular word within a
string or variable...

   put length(word 4 of someVariable) into wordLength

        -- or --

   put length(word 4 of line 3 of fld "myField") into wordLength

Otherwise do you mean the number of chars that occur until the first
letter of a string?  Then that would be...

   put length(word 1 to 3 of "a sample string") - length(word 3 of "a
sample string") into charCount
