The code works fine when I try it.  Try changing the action of the form to "show_cgi.fwx", which will return exactly what is sent from the browser.  If you are still having the problem, it would be helpful if you could send us a URL that we could use to test this script on your server (while pointing to show_cgi.fwx).  If you don't want to post the URL here, you can send it to us via email.

The GET method does not work very well with large amounts of data, but by this I mean thousands of bytes -- not hundreds.  Most probably the cause of the problem in this case is not the size of your data.
Make sure that you include quotes around all HTML values and that you use the Server.HTMLEncode and Server.URLEncode methods, where appropriate.
In order to provide additional help we would need to view your code.  Please post both your pages in this Forum.

I tried using "GET" method form on my first page and created two textboxes on it, and my second page I used the Response.querystring method to get the data, It works fine when I typed about 40 to 50 characters on the input box on the first page, but when I type more than that, the data becomes garbled at the end of the string.  Worse, The other textbox data is also affected, rendering it blank.  What's seems to be the problem?   I read that "GET" method is not very good in getting all the data than "POST" method.  Is that true?  am I doing the wrong thing or what?  Need your urgent reply thanks :-)
