Wow, eight identical posts here, and another one in mpfh. Has to be a 
record.

Not only that, it's also posted on the MSDN forum and ISTR it's on Foxite 
too. If he spent that much time with the help file he'd have his answer. <g>

Yeah. And he just added two more. It illustrates perfectly why newbies on 
any group are advised to lurk for a while.

     I disagree.  Basic common sense is that you do not post multiple
times.  Unfortunately, common sense is rarer than its name suggests.

Common sense meant if you expected the message to appear immediately 
after posting, AND that it didn't, you would think the posting had failed.

As a result, you tried to post the same message again and again till .. 
finally.. it appeared. Then you discovered the latency of message 
posting at msnews.microsoft.com....

Yes, I know. You disagree with most posts.

But that's OK. I'm used to it. <g>

     Did you mean people whose heads are made of wood?  If so, yes.

     Disagreement is good for you.  It forces you to stand on your own
two feet.  <G>

     Do you agree?  Disagree?  It means about the same.  <BEG>
