  • Anatomy of a Good Thread Title

    Thread titles are used in searching the forum, therefore, it is vital they be written to accurately describe your thread content or overall objective using ONLY search friendly key words. That is, your title used as search terms would return relevant results.

    The title must not use non-essential words such as:"Help needed", "Formula problem", "Please help", "urgent", "Code issue", "Need Advice", etc. Such words dilute the title/search results.
    The title should not contain VBA code or formula syntax or use abbreviations, jargon, delimiters (e.g. slashes, commas, colons, etc)
    The title should not assume or anticipate a solution as in referencing Excel functions or VBA methods - the actual solution is often quite different

      THREAD TITLES
      1a. Thread titles MUST aptly and concisely describe your problem.
      1b. Your title must describe your problem, not your anticipated solution.
      1c. Use terms suitable to a Google search and do not use words like "Please Help", "Urgent", "Excel Problem"
      1d. Do not use Excel formulas in thread titles. E.g. "Help with VLOOKUP" (you have assumed the solution to your problem involves VLOOKUP).

      Why? All of the above...
