    i tried extending the limit of characters in the new articles....but i failed.

    i tried changing the table definition but it still couldnt work. so far, it accept only 800 characters which would not be enough to post any real news.

    i tried changing the definition to varchar(MAX) from varchar(800), it failed.


    i need help to fix this prob asap. plz help....plzzz.....

    The max for varchar should be 8000, if you set the length to 8000 in the announcement table you should be fine.

    If you haven't already you might want to consider changing the textbox to freetextbox also, goto aspsksolutions.com check out what it looks like.
