I have a stored procedure that returns a long xml string that is of size 6kb. But I am unable to retrieve that big size. However, if I trim the string to 4kb size, it return successfully to my ASP.NET application.Any thing that is larger than 4kb results in run time error.<BR><BR> My backend is on Oracle. I am using the Oracle client provided by oracle. I tried so many ways butto no avail. I tried changing the web.config httpruntime parameters also. I thought about the "packet size" value of the connection string property; but that is only available to sql clients and not for oracle clients.<BR><BR> So what could be the solution? Please help.<BR><BR>NJM.
