    (for readers only of this thread to avoid the need for them to find the problem in that other thread:

    - The OP marks a reply as an answer;

    - then thinks "I have another question" so he unmarks the reply to avoid closing the thread

    - and then asks his new question)

    Is something that occurs in other forums too. I had exactly the same thing a few days ago (easier to spot because the OP said he had unmarked the answer (he had just marked as an answer) so he could ask another question) and I simply marked it as answer again and added a comment in that post that new questions go in a new thread. I then deleted the post with the new question (and locked the thread to avoid any other new question being asked in that (in effect closed by the OP) thread). 

    [The entire "closed" concept is something that seems to be only understood by moderators as without locking a thread you quite often years after the thread was closed see a new question that all too often starts "I have a different question" or which asks how things are in a different product not supported by that forum.]

  • Looks like MarNass responded well to your post there. Excellent!

    Ultimately, only Moderators of that forum (like Trevor) would be able to make those changes. If it's a problem post again here and we'll try to get ahold of Trevor (or another moderator).

    Thanks!

  • I suggest that you learn how to avoid having CAPS LOCK on.

    I really, really dislike posters who think that having the Title and the text of their post in Caps means that their post will get priority treatment (*). [Note I'm aware that isn't the case here]

    (*) (It does. I delete them very quickly - how's that for priority treatment?)

    I'll keep writing, even though the thread is closed. =^)

    I think it's okay to do so, but asking and answering more questions gets confusing quick.

    For example, I had a problem with setting up PowerPivot. I asked everyone, searched online high and low... the final solution was that I found a Marketer who listed similar symptoms to mine. He posted his issues half way down a thread that wasn't even about PowerPivot. It was a pain to find and sad because the solution is buried and going to be hard for anyone else to find too.

    Thus the encouragement to ask only one question in each thread. I think discussions are okay, but changing topics makes it difficult to find and track for other readers.

    Thanks!

  • I think what you need to do, Ed, is to summarize the correct steps and post an article in TechNet WiKi. You may also post in that forum a discussion type thread (I did once in T-SQL forum when I stumbled upon documented behavior, but yet a bit unknown and surprising and that thread already received a few helpful votes).
