    What is the limit for each submissions in terms of a text value?

    Asked by CorySchulz on April 24, 2016 at 08:06 PM

    I'm wondering what the data limit is for each submission for something as a text value. I'm going to be working with text that's 8-100KB. Will this work?

    Hello CorySchulz,

    Please be noted that we do not have limit on each submissions. I just tested a form with two form fields textbox & textarea. I was able to input text in each field with 125,307 character with spaces which is equivalent to 128.33 KB of size.

    I would suggest you to please test your form with desired input and get back to us if you have any trouble.

    Thank you!

    Ok, I noticed a field getting cut off at the standard 65535 character limit that is usual for mysql. I ended up splitting the data up into a few different slots, which ended up working better for what I'm using it for. So I don't think I'll have any issues. Thanks!

    That's great to know. If you need to import the data to your external database, you have to follow the specific limit that you've mentioned. If you require any further assistance, feel free to contact us again.
