Hi All,
I have an html list box that i populate with say 5 digit customer numbers. I pass them to my report along with 11 other variables.
My report displays fine and on my report I have a drilldown on one column thats gives the user 2 tabs to pick from.
Now the issue. When I enter 9 5 digit customer numbers in the list box and go to the drill down in my report it works fine. If i enter a 10th customer and go the the drilldown when i click on the link it will not show me the tabs.
Does anyone have any idea what is going on.

thanks

Can you post the code, or repro the problem with one of the sample files ?

It's been a while since I have done this, but I think there is a limit to the total number of characters you can pass. Try shortening your fieldnames and see if you can pass one more value.

All the field-name variables and their values get padded together to build a long string for the drilldown call.

Cannot remember right off top, but there is certainly a limit to the length of this string. Minimize field-name lengths and even code/decode values if possible.

If the "newlist" string will be of extremely long lengths, I would suggest writing it out to some file/database and read it back in the next program.

You could also device a mechanism to re-generate the "newlist" from scratch by passing enough info to the subsequent fex and re-running the logic.

Generally speaking, passing extremely long strings is not good for effeciency and security.

How large is the DEPTNAME ?

You may have to use javascript to populate a form the has a method of POST, to solve this.
