Attachments into Variables

Does anyone know of a BSFN that I can use or a process that I can develop
that will retrieve the a specific character length of text from an
attachment?

Is it possible to pass the attachment text into a variable and then use the text function "length( )" to count the characters?

I remember doing a 'Get Text' of the attachment via
media object functions to store it in a text variable
and then using text function 'length()' to find the
length of the text. The length of the text will
include 2 extra characters (for the end of file marker
when they save and exit the attachement)

Hope this helps.
