Looking for formatted BMS RECEIVE lengths

Is there any way I can get the formatted (BMS) RECEIVE length after a RECEIVE MAP FROM (XX) LEGNTH (YY)? YY is the length of an unformatted RECEIVE, received by an earlier RECEIVE SET command. XX is the RECEIVE SET area from an earlier RECEIVE.

I think you are referring to the length of the structure into which you are resolving the LU2/3270 flow. Compilers will know this length and you can, therefore, obtain it from the language-dependant functions (like LENGTH [structure] in PL/1 or L'structure in assembler).
