need help - yup, that's what this thread is for, helping cope with frustrations.
I often post replies to peoples requests for help, when I can figure out what they are asking for, even if my help consists of solutions that I have googled using the information they have provided. (I like the technical challenge involved with trying to understand a new (to me) application). But it can become frustrating to try to figure out their problem if there is insufficient information given in the post.
