I have posted to a couple of threads and even received email notification of answers. Yet when I click on the link to the answer, I get a "No page found" error! Below is a copy of the email I have the demos the missing thread. (Click on the link to see the error message)

The most terrible part of this is that my Points get reduced to reflect the missing posts!!

Any ideas why this is happening?

You haven't necessarily lost the thread. You are referring to a reply, which can get deleted if it's a SPAM post.

Do you have the thread this came from?

All I have is the link that I referenced in my earlier reply. It is a hyper link, so clicking on it should show you what I am seeing.

I do believe that part of the link is a reference number of some sort. That is all I have.

The other thread that I posted to that I cannot find had to do with a query that would return the quarterback name and their max touchdowns and the year that occurred.

How it would be flagged as spam is puzzling.

Was it this thread? http://www.sqlservercentral.com/Forums/Topic1481256-392-1.aspx

The URL you list in there is the URL to a particular post, not a thread. The post might have been deleted because it's a reply to your thread, which was SPAM.

I don't see anything in search with "quarterback", so I'm guessing that either I'm not searching correctly or one of the staff accidently deleted the thread instead of the SPAM post. If you have a title, I can better search or look.

Was it this thread? http://www.sqlservercentral.com/Forums/Topic1481256-392-1.aspx


No. That is a different thread!

I don't have a title, but I believe the word Touchdown was part of the title. I still have the DDL and data of the OP's message. (Don't know if it will help)

CREATE TABLE player_goals (Name varchar(50), Year int, Touchdowns int);

INSERT INTO player_goals (Name, Year, Touchdowns) VALUES ('Drew Brees', 2007, 29);
INSERT INTO player_goals (Name, Year, Touchdowns) VALUES ('Drew Brees', 2008, 25);
INSERT INTO player_goals (Name, Year, Touchdowns) VALUES ('Drew Brees', 2009, 20);
INSERT INTO player_goals (Name, Year, Touchdowns) VALUES ('Steve Young', 2007, 19);
INSERT INTO player_goals (Name, Year, Touchdowns) VALUES ('Steve Young', 2007, 38);
INSERT INTO player_goals (Name, Year, Touchdowns) VALUES ('Steve Young', 2009, 44);

And this was my reply:


Try this and see if it works:

;with cte as
(
select Year, Name, touchdowns,
ROW_NUMBER() over(PARTITION by name order by touchdowns desc) RowNum
from player_goals
)
select Year, Name, touchdowns
from cte
where RowNum = 1

I don't see it in a search in the database. My guess is someone spammed it and the thread got deleted instead of the spam post.

My apologies there. I didn't see it, but we've had a spam attack lately and a lot to delete. It's possible someone made a mistake.

Also, if you can repost it, I'm sure someone will help.

Thank you for looking into this! I have reposted what little I have of the OP.
