Dan, what is the field of characters for a song title?
I have noticed on several occassions with particularly long titles, the lyrics don't submit.
I have gone back and shortened the title when I pick it up, then the lyrics will submit!! Just a quirk? Or is it me :lol:

I'm sot sure I'm afraid. I imagine it would do to do with the field type chosen for storing names - 225 Charachteres would be themaximum (athough it could be less if I was stupid when doing the DB design).

When I finally find time to write some code, the new version should be able to handle up to 255 charachters - Any more than that and you see an impact on Database performance.
