Finding Answers to Questions

Postby Graham Smith » Wed Feb 03, 2010 3:13 pm

Here are a couple tips on finding the answer to your question:

First of all, the SEARCH function is your friend. Before you jump in and ask a question, take a few minutes to search and see what's already been posted. You may also want to search the DataEase Forum Archive ( because there are many things there that are still relevant.

If you cannot find an answer by doing a search then start a new thread in the appropriate section here. But take a few minutes to give some background to your question. When trying to find answers, it's helpful if you explain what you are trying to do and why as there may be answers that are well outside the solution you are looking for.

It's possible that the solution to the question, "How can I push a string up a hill?" turns out to be, "Don't push, pull." But you may never get that answer if you ask specifically, "How do I stiffen a string?"
