True most prefer and suggest the use of subs. I just use Goto in examples. I don't know why. That and it was asked for. Oh well.

ummm...what do you mean? What kind of table? An HTML table, a word table, a matricie table. A variable table. Kind of hard to help you get the location of a table if we don't know the type of table or how it's organized. Some go row to column others go column to row. Unless someone else knows what y...

Sounds like he downlaoded a game and can't find a way past a level. I get that from the walk-through portion of the question. I've never heard of it, and I'd like to know where he got it. The other possibilities are that the game doesn't work like expected. He wrote it and it doesn't work(least like...

I thought this was a QBCommunity magazine. That the only reason we let FB in was because a lot of QB users were migrating toward it.

So if a known QB member made a game, in C++, wouldn't that be worthy of review?

Reality soon creeps in and I realize I need to work on my imagination. I mean seriously, a flame thrower? I sit quietly in the backseat wondering why they bothered to kidnap me if all they were going to do is rob me. Two hours later the car stops and I'm dragged out by my assailants. Stumbling aroun...

TIP: Never forget that reality is relative to the person viewing it. And Never forget that truth is seperate from reality and therefore definate and absolute. Never forget that the phrase "truth is in the eye of the beholder" is wrong, what one chooses to belive is true is in the eye of the beholder...

I don't see why you would do a QB Zebra. I mean unlike the QB Gorilla, there isn't a game that I've heard of with the Zebra. I'm part Native, Part Irish. Both stereotyped heavily where I'm from. Most Canadian Natives don't know this but here in america we have Blood Quantum. Which means that the mor...

Are you sure I don't know the limits? In truth, the biggest limit, not the only or ultimate limit, is one's self. I love writing, I love reading, I love all literature in all forms far more than I love programming. So my limits are what I know and enjoy. I'll limit myself to those and those alone. B...

You're not suppose to rebel, you're suppose to listen to me. :D But seriously, there are limits. It's a great thing to know that the limits are still far away, but it's unrealistic to belive they aren't there. Socrates said that "The greatest wisdom is knowing you know nothing." He came up with this...

Agreed Pete. In fact there are some fabulous tutorials in the tutorials section of this site. It would be ridiculous to make more.
