How do I know what is wrong with my request for help?

P: 3
A little while ago I posted a request for help. See "Setting a flag on a subform as a result of a calculation on it's own subform". I did receive a response that solicited more information which I provided and then heard nothing else. So I need to know:
- was my request incorrectly done?
- did I overlook anything?
- was my problem too difficult?
- was my problem too easy?
- was my problem too uninteresting?
- is everybody just too busy?
- once they are not current are they overlooked?
- was I too rude?
- was my post inappropriate?
- where can I alternately find an answer?
- do minor pleasantries count as a post? (It seems like they do leading be believe that high posters are not necessarily technically adept, but I could be wrong.).)
- have I really upset everyone on my first solicitation for assistance (AKA first posting)?

Thanks and Happy Holidays!

Sincerely,
Dave Ussell

Merry Christmas Dave.

Due to the volume of threads I can't find your previous thread without the url. However, I would guess it is none of the above. ;)

Due to how busy the access forum is we do have a number of experts. However, occassionally threads do fall through the cracks. This is certainly not intentional. Usually if someone has a problem with the information you've provided they will let you know.

If this happens in the future post a reply to the thread asking politely for attention. If this has no effect within a reasonable length of time then send me a PM with a copy of the url (http address) of the thread and if I can't answer it I will let you know why or just bring it to the attention of some of the other experts. I can't answer a question sent by PM but I'm happy to receive a PM to the effect that your question is not being attended to.

Again, I'm sorry this happened. It doesn't happen very often but occasionally threads do get overlooked for various reasons.

(Setting a flag on a subform as a result of a calculation on it's own subform.)
This looks more than reasonable Dave.
I suspect it just fell through the cracks as Mary said.
Give us a while (complicated questions can take a bit longer - especially when there are such a large number of threads of all types to deal with.
As your questions is phrased so well I'm sure it will get some attention.
Just to be clear (explicit) I see no problems with how you've posted your question - in fact it looks like one of the clearer ones to me.
