Hi louie,

The Length Function will give you the total number of characters in a field.

Length(YOURFIELD)

Unfortunately, you have to exit the field in order for the calculation to update. Maybe you use a looping script to update it, something like this workarouond for running a script upon exit of a field.

Or, possibly one of the text Plugins can do this.
