Modify and Text Areas

(OP)
Has anyone successfully written a MODIFY fex which reads upto a 256 byte textarea field from a form?

Example
MODIFY FILE filename
FREEFORM field1... txtfield
DATA
&field1 ... &txtfield

HTML
<textarea name="txtfield" rows="5" cols="50">

I can only get the first 80 chars of the text field if I use format the field as A256.

I get a reject error if I format the field TX256.
(FOC209) THE DATA VALUE EXCEEDS ITS LENGTH SPECIFICATION
The text entered was only 100 chars.

RE: Modify and Text Areas

(OP)
Solution: There is an 80char limitation on amper variables when using the cgi call. Large fields must be broken up into small vars.
