Hi,

I created a simple test:

create table dbo.NamesTest(
id int,
name varchar(200)
)

insert into dbo.NamesTest(id,name)
values(1, 'John Paul')

insert into dbo.NamesTest(id,name)
values(2, 'Simon Garfunkel')

insert into dbo.NamesTest(id,name)
values(3, 'Jimmy')

select * from dbo.NamesTest

1      John Paul
2      Simon Garfunkel
3      Jimmy
--------

How can I run a query that tells me if any [name] field is more than 5 characters in lenght (like nr. 1 and 2 are)?

Thank you! :)
