    What exactly do you mean by expandable? Because once your web page is loaded and the area that the flash object will play in has been defined, you can not change its size without reloading the page. So the banner ad will not be able to expand outside of its predefined bounds.

    You gave a grade of 'B', which indicates that the link wasn't useful in solving your problem.  Based on your question, though, I believe it was fully relevant.

    If the link was helpful, then an 'A' would be appropriate.  The expert does not have to elaborate on a solution to get points, if we refer you to a place that has the answer then that is sufficient to merit a good grade.  The link I provided contained all the information necessary to create an Expandable Banner ad including executable code.  You really could not ask for a better link.  So why less than an 'A'?

    If the link was not sufficient, you should have come back for clarification.  Experts (who are not compensated) don't like to answer questions if they feel their time is wasted by unappreciative people, and there are many of them posting questions.  While I don't think you fall into that category, you need to understand what you are doing and how it affects the experts.

    Sometimes a 'B' grade is perfectly appropriate if the expert only helped somewhat and was not able to answer the question precisely or figure out the answer.  A 'C' is only appropriate if the expert makes an unprovoked offensive comment or abandons a question without a resolution -- but really deleting the question is better in this case.

    My apologies, as you say, I should of given better feedback, I was hoping for more elaboration, but as you say, that's not required and my fault for not coming back to you.

    Thanks for all your help.
    Kind Regards.

    p.s. If there's a way of changing the grade to an 'A' I will do so.
