ASP Stack overflow error --- urgent

I've got an ASP script getting data from a form and posting
it to the next one.

Now, according to ASP documentation the maximum number of
characters you can send over is 2 billion.

It will be needed to send strings over which are about 70/80k,
but it has problems with anything greater than 64k.

I receive the next error message:

------------------------------------------------------
Request object error 'ASP 0107'
Stack Overflow
/y2k/sendy2kxldata.asp, line 29
The data being processed is over the allowed limit.
------------------------------------------------------

The actual line which is causing this is:
Response.write(Request.form("xldata"))

I really do need to send over 70+k lines though,
so if someone could help me on this one, I'd
be most grateful

why not post the information to a database and then read it from there... Kind of tedious, but it would at least work.  Or, you could take the informatio nand using the FileSystemObject, write the text to a file and the on your next page, read it from the file... Just pass the randomly created filename to the next page...

I've tried creating files, but it won't write to it, as
'the string is too big'.

You can't do anything with the actual data because it's too big.
Including writing it to database/screen. You can't even retrieve
the first character(s) of the string.

You will have to create an ActiveX component or just make the string smaller.   No other way around it...  

Make the ActiveX Component a textbox or Richtext box that can handle larger strings...

Sounds plausible enough.. Any idea of where I can get such a
component for an extra couple of points, or will I have to
make one myself?

Good question... I know of no components for this... Maybe some other experts know somwhere you can get one.  I have never tried to create ActiveX components... I am more of an HTML ASP guy, not so much programming as I used to be, so sorry... But, I will check around and see if I can find one...

will make my own one instead.

Thanks! :)
