    64k Limit - Error still showing



      64k Limit - Error still showing


      Hi everyone, I appreciate your help in this. Im importing a base64 encoded image using insert from url. Theres numerous reasons I'm doing it this way, but I came across filemaker go's 64k limit. This wasn't a huge issue, I've got the file now split into chunks of 60k and its being stored in separate fields. This should therefore be under the 64k limit and I shouldn't get an error, but I still do!


      Even if I take the chunk size down to 40k I'm still getting the error message.

      Any ideas????

          Thank you for your post.

          What error message are you receiving?  What is the URL being used?

          FileMaker, Inc.

            Marc, in FM Go the "64 K limit" typically occurs on displaying a "text field" in iOS with content that exceeds around 60 K. That seems to be because of an iOS limitation for editing FM Go text fields with content exceeding around 60 K.  My workaround for this is to use a "Web Viewer field" to view the text field, define the web viewer with a web address defined to something like:

            "data:text/html," &

            GetAsCSS ( YourTable::YourTextField )


            Hope that helps
