    Trying to post a question I am refused with a message that I cannot post links or videos.
    But I'm not trying to post links or videos!
    What's up?

    You must be trying you post something - code? formula? - that the forum software is interpreting as a link. Attach a workbook to your post instead - instructions at the top of the page.

    Re: unable to post

    Nope. The only bit that even looks like code is a snippet of an excel table expression
    I think your forbidden code parser is either too aggressive or too stupid.
    Let's see if I can post that here.

    EQUAL E4-[ AT withdrawal]+[ AT deposit ]
    Removed the = and two AT's

    A little experimentation determined that it objects to the at sign.

    Re: unable to post

    i got the same issue. I wrapped some excel formulas in the #code option but also get this error:

    You are not allowed to post any kinds of links, images or videos until you post a few times.

    How many post do you need before this is accepted?

    Re: unable to post

    There must be something else in the post you are trying to create that is stopping you from posting. Do NOT try to post any links - you aren't allowed to yet (you have not earned the privilege).

    Re: unable to post

    No, because it's a URL, and you can't post URLs yet. Try adding a space before .com and either side of @.

    Administrative Note:

    Members will tailor the solutions they offer to the version (NOT a release number like 2204) of Office (Excel, NOT Windows) that you have. Please check that your forum profile is up-to-date in this respect. If you aren't sure, in Excel go to File | Account and report what it says below the MS logo at the top of that page. If your version is for Mac, please also state this. Thanks.

    Re: unable to post

    I am having the same issue. When I try to post a new thread with attachments, however, I am presented with an empty message box and no way to upload a file.

    The attachment button (paperclip) does not work. Follow the instructions for posting a file in the yellow banner at the top of the page.
