Request entity too large

how do i solve the "request entity too large" error?
im using GET and the page actually has many input text boxes (actually double the size because of hidden fields that stores the original values of records to be updated)
the table clomns and rows all in all is usually 8 x 10 plus 20 other hidden fields. plus half of those 8 x 10 has 1 hidden field each. great.
now i suspect POST is the answer to the problem after scouring the web for a possible enlightenment.
now if i use POST instead of GET, i get the error "data missing". why is that?

It does work here in IE 5.0 and NS 4.7. I don't think there is a limit for number of characters in "POST" method.

Are u using IE 4.0 ?

u can use this also to get the variable name adn the value in the form collection

for each item in Request.Form
     Response.Write Request.Form.Key(item) & " = " & Request.Form(item) & "<br>"
next

oks.. it was a caching problem..
netscape reloads the page (twice) for some unknown reason.
the second time, the caches already expired of some sort im not not really sure what happens but i think it has somethin to do with the cache.

can i just ask another question for the points deposited? :)

im using jsp and how do i know if its a textbox or a textarea?
