Hi Shiva Appreciate your input. Wrt the spanning of the form, I think, in my situation, it would actually make things worse... You see, my suspicion is that most of the users who are experiencing problems, have very bad connections, many complain that they lose connectivity while they are busy

Hi Petre, I'm beginning to have second thoughts about my earlier idea too; coz that is not solving the actual problem (u're have a slow n/w). Afterall how many KB of form data is she/he actually sending? I'll think of other possible solutions. Regards, -shiva Petre Agenbag [EMAIL PROTECTED]

Hi :) I'm actually working on an Multipart-Form and i'm saving all data during the Fill-In process in a Session - then, at the end, i save the whole sessiondata in my table. That will solve the connection-problems i hope . . . If I am wrong, please correct me :) Greetings from Germany Kristin

Well, I'm still a bit concerned about what would happen if the connection got broken while they are busy... The session will time-out (by most defaults, after 1440s), so if they cannot re-connect, and somehow get the same SESSID, then all would be lost that they have done so far..., and that is

Hmm, i don't know if you want it that way, but i got the idea of making the stuff personalized . . . I mean the user logges on and gets an Userid - then you always save your data with the Userid, so you can look which entries in your DB belong to this user and the user can start again at a

Hi Kristin Yes, of course that is a possibility, and it would surely address the problem of resuming at a later stage. I'm just rather worried at managing these broken submissions. They might start one, then for some reason don't finish, and forget about it altogether... But, I think my biggest

Hi Petre, Multipart forms are the solution you need. Here are the reasons why: 1) You can set the length of time that the session cookie will live (I've changed it to a week for the Remember Me feature of my website, works nicely) 2) if users are disconnecting, and not all information is
