Line Length - Geometry Field?

Within my GIS Package there is the local Length or Area of a measurment. Each Line or Area is stored in SQL Server. This is a function only in my GIS Package its currently not a column in the SQL table. Its calculated live on the fly only in the GIS package

Is there a way within SQL Server to determine the Length of a Line Feature on the fly?

Then i need to build a query like this?
First Step
I need a query that will the determine the length of the line is "X" meters.
Second Step
The total address range(Smallest # of the 4 columns) and (Largest # of the 4 columns) in this case the address range is 1-400. That will come from  these 4 existing columns L_F_ADD(1), L_T_ADD , R_F_ADD, R_T_ADD(400).
Third Step  
Calculate the length of the line(Step 1) (divided by 15.25m) then multiplied by 2, . This will give me the total amount of address numbers there should be.
Forth Step
Are the Total Address #'s (Step 3) within 10% of the Actual address numbers on the Road(Step 2). If not flag a column (RangeError).

I have also posted this on the GIS Software package site. I would prefer doing it in SQL server as i know this software won't change. We may be changing GIS Packages shortly so that query will be retired at that point,
Thanks

Not sure I completely understand what you're trying to accomplish. Can you post some sample data and your expected output?

Is there a length field somewhere is SQL Server? So i can find out the Length of a Line to query its results?

the [unstated] GIS package seems to store lines and areas, but not length of line, which is calculated 'on the fly'.

You want that length of line, and then perform some additional arithmetic with that value.

Does the GIS package have an api?
(i.e. can it return the calculated value to you? perhaps it has a web service?)
Or can you scrape that value from (say) a url?

From what I understand of the subsequent arithmetic - that won't be a problem. Getting the initial length value  is the hard bit.

I can get the Length from the GIS Software (Manifold GIS) and populate it in the table but then it becomes static data i need to run a query to update. I was hoping to keep the data "Live"
I'll work with it that way.

Ok, so is there anything else required on this question?
