And how is the table / field of interest configured? 833 will obviously not fit 
into a 255 varchar field...

The info he was trying to submit was 883 characters, including spaces (counted 
in Word).  Many times, people have very detailed descriptions they need to send 
in.  Can you think of a way to work around this limitation?  Also, what 
happened when he tried to submit is he got an email back with “Undefined 
variable” errors wherever the database was supposed to send back info, and no 
record was created.

Unless you are using a text field (which holds 64K [mysql]) a normal varchar 
maxs out at 255 characters Post is limited by the php.ini file amounts (usually 
in the megabyte range). what is the size of the post? Bastien> Date: Fri, 12
