Input string was not in a correct format.

My application takes values from the request querystring and loads them into a database, far too often it bombs with " Input string was not in a correct format." Is there a way that I can dump the entire querystring (however wrong it might be) into a database field for later processing

If you have a column defined as text you should be able to put anything into it, but you are begging to be hacked if you are not validating the input before you do something with it.  If you are not going to validate then dump it into a text file; not the database unless you are willing to have the DB trashed by code injection.
