Uploading Large Amounts of Data in a Form in ASP

Uploading Large Amounts of Data in a Form in ASP

Question:
I have a form with a rather large text area inputting over 4000 characters of data into an Access database. I tried to upload it all at once, and it just cuts off the data around the 2083 character in the address bar. I have to submit this much data all at once because of restraints put on by the application. How can I upload large amounts of text into an Access database using ASP from a form in a Web page?

Answer:
First, I would not recommend using a design that requires large amount of data upload like this. If you do need to do it, change your Form’s METHOD tag from GET to POST. Although it is not failsafe, it will send more info than the GET.
