    Changing the Subject line on a reply

    Be aware that it is possible to change the Subject line on a reply, and that subject line won't show in the thread summary. For example if you go and eyeball VB/VBA for this subject:
    <pre> Word97SR2: bypass the macro security check
    </pre>

    you won't see it there, even 'though I posted a reply to it just five minutes ago!

    That's because it's still part of the "VBE Tips'n'Tricks - GoTo " thread - not a thread in its own right.

    I see several replies made by you and one not too long ago. <img src=/S/shrug.gif border=0 width=39 height=15> <img src=/S/smash.gif border=0 width=30 height=26>

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    Re: Changing the Subject line on a reply

    BTW could you please break long lines of code to make them fit into the board layout neatly instead of making us all have to scroll sideways to read them?

    It's a good idea actually. I do it all the time, when the topic deviates.

    Re: Changing the Subject line on a reply

    Sure. the problem is that the new subject line won't show up in the forum sumamry (unless you have every thread expanded, and then it's hard to see).
