Bonus TIPS for Successful Posting

Try a Search First
It is highly recommended that a Search be done on your topic before posting, as many questions have been answered in prior posts. As with any search engine, the shorter the search term, the more "hits" will be returned, but the more specific the search term is, the greater the relevance of those "hits". Searching for "table" might well return every message on the board while "tablesum" would greatly restrict the number of messages returned.

When you do post
First, make sure you are posting your question in the correct forum. For example, if you post an issue regarding Desktop applications on the Mobile & Browser Applications board , not only will your question not be seen by the appropriate audience, it may also be removed or relocated.

The more detail you provide about your problem or question, the more likely someone is to understand your request and be able to help. A sample database with a minimum of records (and its support files, zipped together) will make it much easier to diagnose issues with your application. Screen shots of error messages are especially helpful.

When explaining how to reproduce your problem, please be as detailed as possible. Describe every step, click-by-click and keypress-by-keypress. Otherwise when others try to duplicate your problem, they may do something slightly different and end up with different results.

A note about attachments
You may only attach one file to each message. Attachment file size is limited to 2MB. If you need to include several files, you may do so by zipping them into a single archive.

If you forgot to attach your files to your post, please do NOT create a new thread. Instead, reply to your original message and attach the file there.

When attaching screen shots, it is best to attach an image file (.BMP, .JPG, .GIF, .PNG, etc.) or a zip file of several images, as opposed to a Word document containing the screen shots. Because Word documents are prone to viruses, many message board users will not open your Word file, therefore limiting their ability to help you.

Similarly, if you are uploading a zipped archive, you should simply create a .ZIP file and not a self-extracting .EXE as many users will not run your EXE file.

            Re: Email notices

            I recently mentioned I could get no email from this board when I had "spamdyke" running, because it flagged everything from this board as spam (for legitimate reasons, "DNS did not point back to a valid domain"). Maybe they tried to fix that problem and now nothing is being sent, or nothing is getting through.

              Thought I was going mad when I had no notifications, how are we to respond to peoples questions if we dont know they have posed them?

              Without notifications we have to scour the posts to see if we are involved in any and then re-read each 1 to see if our coments are needed, too much hard work!!

                I use the New Posts menu option

                Also I have the posts listed in newest order, so I don't have to scroll to the bottom of the list to see the newest post...

                    Thanks Lenny

                    Al, that is exactly what I do but I also do use the email option to track threads, it is so useful.

                    btw, still celebrating the Pack victory?

                      Do you follow college basketball over the pond there?

                        Lenny,

                        I hope there is a solid backup system in place for the messageboard. If ever the info here would get lost then that would be a real drama...
