I am trying to determine the maximum line length from a readFlatFile output Rowset without having to process the Rowset in a for each loop, which can take a long time for large files.
A File Variables have attributes like name and size, so I was wondering if a Rowset has similar attributes.

At this time, there are no Attributes for the ROWSET var. Only the FILELIST var.
To determine max LRECL for a flatFile .. you would have to read from Rec1 through RecX and snapshot the row length.
Depending on your installed system, you might could run a system command (wc -L/linux) and pull the value you need back into the project that way with a quicker turn-around.
I'm sure there are options in Windows, etc as well.
