Arrow FAQ - frequently asked questions - Please read before posting - unofficial - July post

FAQ = Frequently Asked Questions - unofficial

Please save yourself some time by reading it before posting to the
news group.

--- BEFORE POSTING ANYTHING PLEASE READ THESE ---

http://www.mvps.org/word/FindHelp/Posting.htm
http://www.dts-l.org/goodpost.htm

Reading these articles will help you get a quick and meaningful
response to your question rather than just more questions for you.
It may keep your message from being screened or bounced.

A few basics, in case you decide you can skip that article:
(1) Be nice; everyone answering questions here is a volunteer.
(2) Post a question in only one newsgroup generally. If you
_have to_ post in more than one, post a _single_ message and
put both newsgroups in the header for that _single_ message.
(3) Do not attach anything to a message.
(4) The only really stupid question is the one you don't ask.
(5) Do not use your real email address unless you enjoy spam. (See
bottom for sample.)

The reasons for the requests are spelled out on the web pages.

A longer version of this FAQ is also on the Internet at
