    Default How long does it take a moderator to approve a post

    Hi all, new to this forum. I tried to make a post about 4 hours ago but it will not show up in the Excel Questions forum. How long does it usually take for a moderator to approve it. I made myself look stupid by trying to post it twice more thinking I did something wrong the first two times.

    Depends on whether & when there are any moderators on-line.

    When you first post it, it tells you that you will wait until a Moderator approves it before you will be able to see it (I know a lot of people don't bother to read it). So please wait for it to be approved, and not try to post it multiple times. Moderators are on-line at various times, but weekends tend to have less Moderator activity, so you may need to wait a little while.

    Note: This stipulation is only put on noobs, and it depends on the content of the post. After 10 posts, you will no longer be subject to this.
    TIPS FOR FINDING EXCEL SOLUTIONS
    1. Use the built-in Help that comes with Excel/Access
    2. Use the Search functionality on this board
    3. A lot of VBA code can be acquired by using the Macro Recorder.
