        Thanks Mark!

         

        I sort of hoped that the figure would pass by quietly and unnoticed, though I have to confess I wondered what title Mike and Gareth had allocated to the point of change (assuming that there would be one.)

         

        I hope the majority of the post have been relevant and useful - it would seem somewhat fraudulent if they have not been so.

         

        And I have to say there are a large number of you out there who I believe have much greater knowledge and competence than I do - but are probably kept too busy by employers to make the numbers on the forum!

         

        Finally may I say I find it a great pleasure to be exchanging ideas with all of you and learning so much as part of that.

         

         

        A great forum for a great set of products.

          Congratulations Grant. Come on, admit it. You live, breathe and dream Monarch 24/7.    

           

          Granted, I'm not out here as much as I would like, but everytime I do, I never fail to find something new to try and or contribute.

            Hi Nick,

             

            I have to deny the 24/7 claim!

             

            I don't ever recall having a dream about Monarch and there is usually at least one day a week where I am kept busy with other things  - so 20/6 is probably about right.    

             

            I guess I really should broaden my horizons .. perhaps more VorteXML, some Data Pump and a VB programming course?    

             

            Have fun.

              Grant,

               

              I've learned much from all[/b] of your posts, whether they were in response to my own queries or those of others. Thanks again! I can't wait to see what challenges you'll cover and conquer in the next 500!    

               

              I for one would love to see what you come up with when you start playing with VB.   :cool: 

               

              Best regards,

              Sandy

                I for one would love to see what you come up with when you start playing with VB.    :cool: /quoteBe afraid. Be very afraid.        

                 

                Grant, if you need any help in the VB area, let me know how I can be of assistance.

                 

                My VBA/Monarch routine is constantly evolving as I learn things (dynamic filtering, two-pass models, etc).

                  Grant, if you need any help in the VB area, let me know how I can be of assistance.[/quote]Ok, great. First, where do I start? Second, never yet been to California, can you offer residential training?        :cool:

                  Life may not be long enough ...

                   

                  Have fun everyone and thanks for your very kind  comments.
