long text into a mySQL field error

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

I am having a problem putting a certain length of text from a textarea form
element into a mySQL field.

The field is set to LONGTEXT but I get an error. Whne I shorten the text it
writes to the DB with no problem.

I am getting a long strng, perhaps 200 characters or more into a variable that
will then be written to an mySQL DB but I
am getting an error in the DB.

How can I set the field to accept more than 400 or 700 text characters?

thanks in advance for any help
