Yep,
Type it up as a normal word document off line
Gives you time to edit it , spell check it etc.

Go on line and ge into replo box! minimise and bring up your doc.
edit/ select all, edit /copy
minimise doc, maximise reply
paste and its on!

Cheers

Alright ray,

When you make a big reply/post you've gotta do it how Ziptrev suggests its sooooooooooooooooooooo frustrating to lose such a long post.

C'ya, Robin.

The most annoying is when you type the post and click ResetFields instead of Preview by mistake icon_smile_dissapprove.gif, I've done this a few times and could have kicked myself when everything is deleted, lol.

Regards, Dave

Hi Ray,

Everything seems okay at this end.

Locate your report on your PC, use the Edit>Select All>Copy commands and then click HERE

Right Click in the Text Box and select Paste. Make sure you are either logged in or have entered your details and click Post.

See if this works. It's nothing different to normal and if it doesn't we'll look further into it.

Cheers, Dave

Hi Ray,

The size shouldn't make a difference.
If you can post in the PlayGround the only problems that might be is if your ISP is returning a timeout before the information is loaded to the database. This may be to do with the actual size of the post you are making.

Can you send it to me as an attachment and I'll add it for for you from this end?

Cheers, Dave

Hi Ray,

Your report added fine from this end with no problems.
The length of the report shouldn't have made the difference as it wasn't large by Trevs standards, lol.

Try putting the next parts in and see what happens. If it still doesn't work then email them them on to me.
