is it possible to convert a string to a length?

In GDL yes. Look up the obviously named SPLIT command. 🙄 To be fair it does a good job, it's just not as immediately obvious as something like "StrToNum" which doesn't exist.

Thank you very much! I was aware of the SPLIT command but didn't know that it achieved what I was after.
... Unless you were after the length of the word on screen which is STW, or the number of characters which is STRLEN?
