Geodatabase feature classes, depending on their geometry type, may contain automatically generated fields for shape length and area. In personal and file geodatabases, these fields will be named using the name of the shape field suffixed with "_Length" and "_Area". In an SDE geodatabase, the names of these fields will be dependant on the underlying DBMS.

The IFeatureClass::ShapeFieldName property should be used to determine the name of the length and area fields for a feature class.
