@ThunderFrame Dumb tier 1. What if they just told them they pulled the power cable?
 
Tier 1?
 
@Hosch250 IKR, but there are users that think they know everything, and in reality only know enough to be dangerous.
Tier 1 support - aka the helpdesk
telephone support in Bangalore or Manila. Bad English, bad advice, read from a script.
 
@Hosch250 I finished all the operators. Still trying to internalize => aka "Lambda declaration"
 
Don't worry about that one, it's hard.
 
@ThunderFrame Oh dear... Dem filipinos. My wifes one of them so I haz 1sthand experience.
I get the concept but some of the nuances I don't fully understand

I guess it's a bit like a doctor admitting himself to hospital. He probably knows what's wrong, but has to see the triage nurse and have his vitals taken before he can see a doctor.
I'm told that doctors can make for the worst patients. I guess "power users" make for most of the headaches too.
Is there a reason for the incremental indent? — ThunderFrame 39 mins ago

@ThunderFrame The doctors that I worked with, any time they had a doctor as a patient they'd get him/her out as fast as they could. Even to the point of delaying other patients...
 
@ThunderFrame So do I.
It shouldn't be an option.
BTW, wouldn't a real power user use Option Explicit?

@Hosch250 Only those that don't trust themselves.
 
@Hosch250 yep, sorry, forgot the air-quotes: "power user"

Q: Retrieving database values through properties

Kostas K.I have a “Settings” table which I make frequent DlookUp calls to retrieve values. So I thought instead of having to write Nz(DLookup("FieldName", "TableName", "Condition"), vbNullString) everytime I needed the value, why not wrap it in a property in a standard module. Public Property Get ActiveK...
