Hi,<BR><BR>I&#039;m wondering how I decide whether to use a VARCHAR field type or a TEXT (or TINYTEXT) field type for storing a string inputted via a text box in an HTML form.<BR><BR>How do I know which of these two use ? Is it dependant on certain situations ? Is either one better when searching for a substring of the stored string ?<BR><BR>Thank you,<BR>Hal.
