But there are no rules that compel anyone to respond to a post.
Sometimes you simply won't get much of a response because no one is around at that time. Being On Line does not mean anything as they might not be in the frame of mind to respond to a post. Perhaps they are even looking for something for their own use. Maybe they are just scanning the forum while watching TV. Who knows.
1. I just don't feel like it.
2. It would require typing a LOT to explain (and I hate typing or writing)
3. the question seems like it could end up going off on other tangents and I just don't have the time to deal with it now.
4. And, I may just not know the answer (nobody knows EVERYTHING about Access - although there are a few which must be pretty close - and I'm not one of them)
and there may be more...

I'm sorry Col. Didnt I mentioned here that I can see whose individual online are capable but nonetheless didn't bother.
if I may answer that Mike, can you tell what post have I fallen in your #1 "(1) Written in all lower case, terrible spelling and punctuation."
as I have said previously, I wouldnt asked question if I have either got my solution from googling or from other forum as well.
I gave you a generalisation of postings that might not attract a response or very little repsonse.
But in a nutshell, a very large proportion of the posts get answered and the person is happy. That is not happening for you so the answer is obvious........change how you post.
