    Hi, I think now and then I'm guilty of these things.  What does "bump a post" mean?  I understand cross posting.

    "Bumping a post" is posting solely to increase its visibility by bringing it to the top of the list.


    And, depending on how and when it's done, it can be done "appropriately" but that's not usually the case.  People frequently think that someone is just waiting to answer their question or that the responders get paid to do so.  Nothing could be further from the truth especially since most of the responders are full time employees working their normal jobs.  As with all else, "It Depends". 😉

    RBAR is pronounced "ree-bar" and is a "Modenism" for Row-By-Agonizing-Row.
    First step towards the paradigm shift of writing Set Based code:
    ________Stop thinking about what you want to do to a ROW... think, instead, of what you want to do to a COLUMN.

    Change is inevitable... Change for the better is not.

  • This was very helpful. I learned some also from it.

    I hopefully have posted my current question in a better format and have explained myself well enough.


    Thank you
