I'm trying to do a MySQL SELECT based on the length of a field  being less than a value.

The MySQL docs talk about CHAR LENGTH (doesn't work).

I tried SELECT * FROM `resv` WHERE date > '2011-12-31' and CHAR LENGTH(confno) < 8 order by confno.

I tried SELECT * FROM `resv` WHERE date > '2011-12-31' and CHAR_LENGTH(confno) < 8 order by confno.

They don't work.

How can I do this?
