    where are the old posts?

    OK. I've been away for two months or more, so I'm not current with what's going on, but a cursory reading of a few posts suggests that (1) the search facility is, at least temporarily unavailable and (2) that a two-month cap has been placed on posts.

    Does this mean that posting in, say, VBA forum, that are more than two months old have disappeared?

    In particular, how would I go about locating/generating an http reference to a posting that I KNOW was there two years ago?

    Thanks for any indulgencies .........

    I signed up for the VB/VBA daily digest a year ago, so it's in my mailbox. If it's a very discrete search which isn't going to turn up dozens of threads, I'll run it. Otherwise, well, you might have to wait until the Lounge has a new home. <img src=/S/sad.gif border=0 alt=sad width=15 height=15>

    Thanks, Jefferson, but it is not a discrete search. It is a discreet search (grin!).


    I was wanting to obtain background info on a topic, and I find the Search facility ideal for getting up to speed. You don't want to know how much I already don't know!

    Thanks, KT. I'd read that but was wondering if there had been any new developments.
