    Why can't the session system handle large dropdown records?

    Asked by James on September 10, 2014 at 04:29 AM

    What do you mean by ,matter of fact our session system will not be able to handle a large amount of records in drop down menus' - how many records can be handled and is this records per drop down or the total number of drop downs?

    You are asking for clarification about our session system with the use of dropdowns. What it means is that if you intend on using a "dropdown-based" setup for this such as retaining the saved information as a session then our system would not be able to handle such large records for that.

    As an alternative to that if you can live without the "session" part of it then a better option would be to use our AutoFill Feature with Saving enabled which should suffice.
