Still not a flame, but possibly helpful advice :-) : if you've done
your "homework" and are having problems with what's given in the help
file or stated in some resource on the Net, then do say so. First, it
allows people who've faced that exact niggling problem to give you
focused and specific help to solve your problem. Second, other members
give you credit for having tried your best before asking the list for
help; not only are people more willing to help, it also reduces the
chances of curt replies or even flames.
Not getting it isn't a problem; we all have days on which our IQ seems
to drop to 50 or so - colds, tiredness, whatever - and God knows how
many list members on this list and others have suffered _my_ posts
during momentary fits of brain shutdown.
Glad you managed to solve your problem, though.
