    Red face Unanswered: FMP and IIS Character Limit?

    I need to figure this one out..

    does anyone know what the deal is with Windows2000 Advanced Server, IIS,
    and the number of characters that can be submitted through any form
    coming in through FMP Unlimited CDML?

    I have a custom edit form set up, and if the number of characters being
    submitted are few, it edits fine, however, on larger amounts of content,
    more characters, it gives me an error that

    An unexpected error occurred: Couldn't find database name in POST arguments.

    Does anyone know how to fix this? I am posting Commentaries and Press
    Release articles, and they can get kind of long.

    Thanks in advance.

    I believe the limit is not actually on IIS's end, its Filemakers issue. There is roughly a 600 word limit on a form field. This is under Filemaker 5.0 and 5.5. I don't know the exact size but its around a page of information.

    The Web Companion just doesn't seem to be able to parse anything bigger than that.
