I posted a relatively simple problem yesterday with no responses. Question - how can I pay to get a solution ? Who and where can that be found ?

Thanks

Waterfall charts in Excel?
Office 365 customers have access to Waterfall charts since late 2016. They were added to Excel 2019.

The people that help, help for the love of the challenge.

Before posting, I would recommending a little light reading.... http://www.mrexcel.com/forum/excel-questions/127080-guidelines-posting-updated-22-nov-2006-a.html

The mass majority of the people I have run across here want to learn how to do the task they are trying to do, not necessarily just to get it done. Then next time they are in the same situation, they can just do it. I surprise myself sometimes with the VBA code I write that 2 years ago I had no clue about any of it, but that is largely to the great people who volunteer their time to help here.

There are a few key factors I typically see in posts that get no response that I'll share with you.

1. Explain in detail what you currently have and what you are attempting to do.
2. Give sheet layouts. What is in what cells or columns or rows, etc.
3. Don't attach a file unless asked to share the file. A "look at my file request" is bound to be ignored, especially from first timers due to the extensive damage that a bad macro could do just by opening the file.
4. Do not bump your message. You see that button that says "Zero Reply Posts"? Many people use that to find questions that have not been answered. If I see 4 responses, I'm more likely to think that someone is already helping you and many other people think that too. So you are more likely to receive a response with 0 replies than with 4 bumps. Replying to your own message should only be limited to new information that aides in having enough information to help you resolve your problem.

If after all that, you don't want to learn how to do it, but you would rather have someone do your project for you, then I would recommend a good Google search in your area for Excel developers. I'm sure there is someone local who would be glad to do your project for you.

The challenge is in creating the project. Having the whole thing done for you learns nothing.

Take care,
RJ

Getting no reply can have several meaning
1) You stumped the audience and nobody has a solution
2) You didn't explain it clearly enough for people to figure out what you really wanted to do
3) many people posted at about the same time and people missed your post.
