    Alright; I'm still stumped.
    I'm curious about .... ftp'ing a batch of files using VBA.
    My old habit dies hard.
    I enter the VBA forum and search for ftp.
    Nada, natch, because my only search term is less than four characters.

    I could search for "+file +transfer +protocol", but then I'd miss {your name here}'s excellent post which says "How you can VTP via VBA", or similar which, co-incidentally makes a pretty good search phrase IYAM, even 'tho (another good 3-letter word!) it is composed entirely of 3-letter words.

    How is everyone else standing on the shoulders of giants such as {your name here} and making progress by basing good code on the code of those who have gone before?

    This is an irritating limitation of the search option; you can cheat (to a certain extent) by searching for ftp*.

    Or I could just have a lot of fun with my inventive mind over the next few months

    I wouldn't have called it irritating, but then I'm not a nice guy like you, Hans (grin!)
    If you need a chuckle, try imagining Google Search with this restriction!
