That actually worked.  Out of curiosityi - because I have never had this problem before - what does the symbol do?

the double quotation mark should be in pair
What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.
