asp.net - divide the value of a varaible into 5 textareas...

I have an asp.net page in vb.net....once the data is pulled from a sql connection...
it populates a varable...i need to divide the data in that varaible into 5 textareas...

the first 100 of the chars foes into ta1..the second 100 chars goes into ta2..etc...

the one thing is that the textareas run on the client not at the server...so I am using javascript...

        document.getElementById('Textarea2').value.length <= 200
     document.getElementById('Textarea3').value.length >= 200 and
        document.getElementById('Textarea3').value.length <= 300
