I have a page with several <textarea>s which feed fields in our SQL Server database. On occasion we have a user who fills these textareas with lots of text. Our first problem was the truncation error due to the size of our table fields. I changed the fields to varchar with the maximum size available (8000). I've also tested the <textarea> control and know it will accept more than 8000 characters. I still get errors on large quantities of text, less than 8000 characters though (I've tested it). So, now I'm wondering about the length of the SQL Select statement. Does anyone have any ideas about gathering large quantities of text from an ASP page that might help our problem?<BR><BR>Thank you.
