Ü  %SIZE

·         It returns the number of bytes occupied by the element.

·         The argument may be a literal, a named constant, a data structure, a field, an array etc.

·         For a null value field %SIZE returns full length.

·         If *ALL is specified as the second parameter for %SIZE, then the elements or occurrences size is also taken into account for array or multiple occurrence data structure
