I am collecting data from users on one form, altering the data, and then depending on which option the users (user will choose a submit button out of many) selects I will be passing the data to a different form where the data will be altered further. I plan on turning the data collected from the first form into a string and passing it to the second form. The question is how big of a string can a post variable hold?

note: I do have access to a database for this because persistence is not required.

Thanks in advance.

well depends on your max post memory. i think default is 8mb, which is for more than enought for your data needs.

Thanks for your reply. Is there a way to verify max post memory size? I there a way to reset it if I ever need to?

look for post_max_size

<?php echo phpinfo(); ?>
