In my form I build a texteditor with textarea in there. But i do have a problem here. When I click the update button the value of the textarea get truncated. In the backend I use the stored procedure to do the update
CREATE PROCEDURE [dbo].[updateProgramRequirements]  
@requirements varchar (100),
@prereq varchar (100),
@hidden integer,
@reqid integer
 
 AS
 
BEGIN
update  tablename set requirement=@requirements,req_prereq=@prereq  ,hidden=@hidden where reqid=@reqid
END
GO

What is the length of the text in the textarea? You may need to increase the variable and column sizes if the allowable text length is longer than a varchar (100).

Then your variable type and size should match.  Using a varchar (100) will likely truncate the string value to 100 characters.
