Long Text in a Textarea

8
Hi guyz! I am stuck with this.
I have a textarea. My program functions well only with short texts. Data will be sent and save on the database--MSSQL Server properly. But when I copy data from MS Excel and paste to my textarea, data cant be submitted (in IE). I got error "URL too long...." (I guess) from Mozila Firefox.

I know the text is not quite that long coz I tried copy/pasting these data to a certain website and data is successfully saved.

please can anybody help me? Thank You!

If you are using form method=get, try method=post.

If you are using form method=get, try method=post.
The GET method allows you to pass approx. 2800 bytes. With the POST the length of the string is (theoretically) unlimited.
