i created a <TEXTAREA> to allow users to enter comments. i want to store this in the database. my questions are:
1. what type of field should it be? varchar(MAX)?
2. what is the maximum length of the column in the database? i want to limit the text area so i can prevent users from entering too much text
3. how do i store the text from the text area into the database? what value do i reference? is it just like a normal text type input?
heres what my code looks like for the textarea:
<td colspan="2" align="center"><TEXTAREA NAME="Comments"
