  • In theory, it can be just an honest mistake. The moderator marks answers quickly and marks wrong answer (or answer that looks like it may be an answer) as an answer. The OP or another moderator can correct this mistake. I've sent this thread to be corrected to the moderator I know.

  • Jeff,

    Sorry. I understand that you have posted an article that is related to Interactive Sorting in that thread. I fully appreciate that.

    However, as we do not know where "Unregistered Version" in the screenshot comes from, I suspect that the properties is not belonging to a legal copy of SQL Server. If that is the case,  the question is not supported.

    Thanks for your time.

  • Jeff,

    this sometimes happens ( as you know yourself ), but this is really wrong, as i guess that "unregistered version" belongs to the screenshoot tool and doesn`t belong to MSSQL Server.

    If you have got questions about this, just ask.

    In a perfect world,
    users would never enter data in the wrong form,
    files they choose to open would always exist
    and code would never have bugs.

  • I'm not concerned about the words "unregistered version". What I'm concerned about is the reply marked as the answer.  That reply clearly isn't the answer.

    The OP asked how to do interactive sorting and the reply marked as the answer makes no attempt to answer the question, instead it talks about the text "unregistered version".  How did the moderator come to the conclusion to mark that reply as an answer.

    I don’t care about missing out on a couple of points but I do care about wrong replies being marked as the answer.

  • This is a clear case of a moderator with a questionable habit of marking a thread answered after a week if the OP hasn't done so himself regardless of whether the thread has been answered or not. This no doubt happens several (tens, hundreds of?) times a day on the forums.

    Usually when people come to the Forums Issues forum reporting this kind of activity, they are instructed to contact the culprit themselves.

    Would do that however there's no way to contact them directly :-)

    Yes, I'm aware of that. I guess they want you to create a new thread or reply to the thread in question and hope that it catches the attention of the person you want to.

    ...I never thought it was very good advice.

    Even if the message did relate to SSRS, the reply you marked as the answer is not correct as the reply does not provide any information regarding interactive sorting.  The question should therefore remain unanswered.

    Couldl you plaase unmark the reply you marked as the answer so that the OP can get a more accurate reply.
