Hi, I have a remarks field in my database which is to be updated on the basis of the text in the TEXTAREA on the form. It is working partially that is the column is being updated but the column format goes haywire in the database. I checked the query string which is built, in that extra carriage return characters are being introduced. How do I remove them, I tried ltrim and rtrim, but it doesnt work.<BR>Thanks in advance.<BR>Ashish
