Are we Limited in creating form fields or controls

Postby frankd » Mon Jan 09, 2012 11:42 pm

Having a issue with the amount of fields in a form. I'm trying to creating a survey form that will include roughly 35 fields to include a combinations of Combo, Text boxs, edit boxes and such.

The problem I'm having is, after 30 fields, the submit mailto: stops working.

Please Help

If my memory serves me correctly there is no limit of to the number of fields in a form, a table has a limit of 255 fields (+1 column reserved for the Timestamp). you can have a form that will use a query of a record sources that can be used to join many tables, however there is a limit of 754 controls that can be used within a form.

Not sure where I'm falling short then. Will continue to play.

mailto: ?

Probably this is your problem, IF you are submitting through the email client.
