    Do it in the Rules in the Hindu Way, that might help. PUNT? No thanks !

    My answer was removed/ censored, - with hind sight quite correctly. Apologise for that.

    I had, mistakenly, initially thought you might have suggested that he was screwing about with someone in a bad way, as suggested by a transitive verb definition given a little way down at this site:
    http://onlineslangdictionary.com/mea...nition-of/punt
    I innocently hit on that definition first on a Google search. That tied up with that initial thought, I felt.

    I did not think he was doing that.

    Or at least I thought there was a chance that it may be down to difficulty speaking in English. I have since put a Suggestion for Improvement in that we get the Forum Rules translated into Hindu.

    Considering that the management are from the India area, and we clearly have many Indian OPs, I would have thought that was both a useful and fairly easy thing to do.

    But I think the way we handle these things sometimes is very commendable. It does take patience of a saint, and more time.
    I guess many first time OPs just want a quick answer, and probably sometimes just want their work done for them.
    But it is in everyone’s interest, in my opinion, to try and “educate”... certainly the helpers are trying very hard in that Thread.. A problem with a written media like Forums is that in a few cases , possibly like the OP in that Thread, it is difficult to give a somewhat harder lesson / education .. which might be a bit more efficient , if you know what I mean , ... so you really have to take the arrogance / insults, and try to “convert” them ... or just move on ..

    And may I just add: Quote from the thread linked above "Dont respond to my post if your not offering to help. You clearly dont know how to do this either since your asking me what worked and what didnt. What a joke. [Offensive comment removed by moderator] and stay away from my post." / QUOTE

    Fdibbins, you sir really do have the patience of a saint.

    Re: "I need a macro that is so simple it could be written with the macro recorder...."

    Both Jerry and I thank you all for your support and kind words, I would like to pass those same compliments on to all the mods (as well as gurus and experts) here who all do an outstanding job, often under very trying conditions.

    You just have to keep in mind that we are all here to help and to learn, and always remember that those we help, may not even be at a level where they even know what questions to ask - if you dont even know that a certain tool even exists, how would you know to ask how to use it?

    We have rules on this forum - as do all similar forums, and we expect all members to abide by them. They may not be the best around, some may need updating, changing, deleted, added, and not all members will (ever) agree to all of them, but gentle reminders of those rules, often goes a long way.

    I know all members are expected to read those rules on joining, but honestly, how often does anyone really read things like that. That being said, if no-one points out the expectation to follow a certain rule/way of doing things, then you simply wont know
    1. Use code tags for VBA. [code] Your Code [/code] (or use the # button)
    2. If your question is resolved, mark it SOLVED using the thread tools
    3. Click on the star if you think some-1 helped you

    Regards
    Ford
