The site Admins and Moderators are more than happy for this thread to stay open for as long as byundt wishes to continue the discussion. Whilst we do appreciate that this sort of circumvents the "abandoned question" remit we feel that we can make a special dispensation now and again and this is one of those time when we are willing to make that dispensation. We'd kindly ask that if you come across this thread during clean-up, just skip it.
Thank you kindly for your continued assistance with this.

This thread is for general discussion about all things related to the Excel TA and its experts. Both regular contributors and newcomers are always welcome. Topics might include:
Asking for assistance with specific questions.
Issues, announcements, and discoveries related to this zone.
Discussing Experts Exchange features and functions that are of specific interest to this TA's experts and do not require moderator participation.
Recognition of new experts, amazing posts, and accomplishments related to this TA.
Getting to know your fellow Excel experts.
Planning meets and greets with other Excel experts when traveling.
And, occasionally, a little humor and other completely unrelated topics that are of interest to the Excel community.
Drivel posts such as "First Post" or "Subscribing" will be deleted. There is a "Monitor" link (looks like an eye) in the left sidebar near the top of the question. Click it. It does magical things.
This thread must not be used for any of the following:
Presenting any specific member in a negative light.
Suggesting that any specific member needs to change their behavior.
Suggesting that others blacklist any OP for any reason.
Whenever an issue arises with a specific question, avoid engaging with others in that question and use the "Request Attention" function to request moderator assistance. More general issues and concerns should be taken up privately with the site moderators, all of whom are listed here (select "Community Volunteers"). You can contact admins, moderators, topic advisors, and page editors using their member name: membername@experts-exchang
e.com. This will not work for cleanup volunteers.
If you have a question about how this site functions or a problem using this site, please post a separate question in one of the community support TAs. Doing so helps keep this thread focused on Excel related topics and gives other members with similar problems a better opportunity of finding the solution assuming there is one and it's posted to your question.
