Seven Ways to NOT Get Answers to Your Microsoft Dynamics GP Questions via Newsgroups
The shift from newsgroups to forums is well under way for Microsoft Dynamics products. Mariano Gomez highlighted the trend in a recent article. With the change, I wanted to examine the best ways to actually get your questions answered in the forum.
Moderators care a lot about how questions are formatted. Certain types of questions will either go unanswered or get non-answers. Avoid these types of questions if you want to actually receive an answer:

"Can anyone help me write the code in VBA To connect to the SQL server tables, retrieve data and display it in the Report writer through Visual basic editor?"
This person is asking for VBA, SQL and VB code. He or she doesn't want help, but rather free outsourcing.
