    I fill out forms dependant of users login on to web-services - usual stuff..
    When reaching a certain size I get problem trying submitting a html-form. I
    will simple not submit.
    I've seen similar when creating a link it cannot exceed the size of

    any suggestions?

    Best Regards

    Internet Explorer has a maximum URL length limit of 2083 characters
    ( If your form submits using GET

    (which is what you seem to be experiencing) or whether it uses a truncated

    If it is related to using GET (and you are using IE) then can you change the
    form to use POST instead?
