What do you mean by 'keep checking for that folder if opened'? And what do you mean by 'login to a forum'?

As for the coffee, you have to make it yourself. :)

bingie,
At 2 questions for 20 points, who needs duplicate ID's - or are we the dupes?

As you may be starting to realise, several questions per posting means that you can't  describe the problem in the title. It also gives responders a problem about  which one to answer, and it gives you a problem about knowing when to to close the question and how to allocate the few points that you offer.

I have an answer to the 'Select Case' part of your 'Three Questions' question
 http://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Programming_Languages/Visual_Basic/Q_20792328.html.

If you still need an answer, raise it as a single question and I'll post a comment.

hey,
sorry I know I offer very little points but I have only 35, I mean I dont have alot and I really have a bunch of questions to ask.
really sorry
I even try not to come to this site unless I asked my question of many other forums and got no answer.

@GrahamSkan
well, I asked that question on other fourms too and I got that it is only possible to do like that

Select Case Left$(bla, 3)
case "..."
end select

Select Case Left$(bla, 4)
case "...."
End select

if u have a better way then I'll make a new topic for it

PS:
When u answer a question and get your answer accepted dont u get point on that?

Yes, I think I have a neater way on the Select question?  I'll respond to minimum points (others might not). Post here after you've done it so that I get an email and know to look.

I'm sorry, but I'm not sure that I understand this:
"When u answer a question and get your answer accepted dont u get point on that?"
You get expert points for comments accepted as answers. I'm not sure if you can spend them when asking questions. Is that what you meant?

To chnage the signature you have to follow the same approach and locate what is the name of the text box where you need to automate your signature.
