    Just let it remain. Someone might answer sometime. And if you don't get an answer to your question just post to it yourself asking for help again but only do that after a week or so.


    And this thread really should have been posted to the help forum.

    IF, big IF, OP reports successful conclusion that ends discussion unless some of us find it interesting & want to continue. Most of the time when OP gets the answer, OP just fades away & members keep suggesting until some member reminds us that OP has flown the coop.

    Edit the OP and add, in big red letters, SOLVED.
    Not sure if you could do that to the thread title as well.

    Other than "Solved" I would not care any further.

    Posted wrong place earlier:

    Just go to your thread, click on "Thread Tools," and edit title to [SOLVED]...

    That won't stop replies, but it may help.

    Leave your thread open for others. Mention that you are satisfied or solved. If you do not want any further notifications........go to top of thread and "un-watch it"

    It's at the top of your thread only. Go to YOUR thread. Look up at top menu bar. Thread tools.

    I have never used it, but mine are there.

    Oh...sorry buddy...didn't notice your low post count. You might need 10 or so post before they let you edit your post. not sure.

    Why would you want to take away some of the only fun we have? Posting different ways of doing or fixing things is what we live for here. :) Many of the constant posters here are retired and miss the work we did.
