  LENGTH variable

    Returns the number of BYTE, WORD, DWORD, QWORD, or TBYTE items

                  the DUP operator in the variable definition.  Therefore,
                  only variables defined using the DUP operator will
                  return values greater than 1.  String constants will
                  allows return 1.
