Once again, theDBGuy has passed an incredible milestone. He's supplied over 75,000 posts.

It's getting hard to come up with superlatives. TheDBGuy is not only prolific, but consistently accurate, helpful and insightful. Posters know that, if theDBGuy sees and answers their questions, they'll get the help they need. What more can you say?

He gets the job done and we're all that much better because of it.

Oh my?

How is this possible?

And, really the kindness and patient he still shows to newbie's?

What a standard and inspiration to all of us to follow.

Can only say, well done - and the Access community thanks you oh so very much for all you done, and all you do!

Cheers! cheers.gif

Nobody does it better,
Makes me feel sad for the rest,
Nobody does it half as good as you,
DBG, you're the best!

The sheer number of replies would be stunning by itself. Combined with the succinct accuracy of the replies, and the patience and class with which the help is delivered, DBGuy's contribution is without equal. I am among the thousands who have benefitted from your skill, DBGuy. Thank you again.

Well here we go again. Running out of ways to say congrats and keep up the good work, just kidding.
What would we do without theDBGuy.

I think we should just rename the site in honor of him and be done with it smile.gif.

Hi All. Sorry, I'm late to the party. I was busy helping someone next door. (Yeah, that's my story and I'm sticking to it.) Seriously though, thank you so much to all of you for making it a lot of fun to hang out here and make new friends. I really enjoy learning a lot just by being around all of you! As I wrote on my website, everything I say here to try to help someone are basically just a repeat of what I learned from all of you. So, I can't really take the credit because the knowledge didn't come from me. I am merely just a messenger. Therefore, I tip my hat to all the members of UA, without whom, I probably wouldn't be here. Again, many, many thanks to all of you!!! hat_tip.gif

George has said it perfectly in that there are no more superlatives left as far as theDGguy goes. It is both an honor and privilege working here right along side you. Hats off to you! cheers.gif

P.S. - With 72,827 more Posts, I'll be exactly where you're at now! laugh.gif

Do you know... why I do I even bother?
I spend time attempting some new superlative on a congrats thread and then he goes and has another in about 5 minutes. The man can't be kept up with! You're just hard work DBG.

Actually, you are the personification of hard work.
You've become the keel of UA's forum answering. The quiver that keeps our arrows flying. The beast that chomps away at the question-like blades of grass in our field. (That last one wasn't quite as flattering. Make it a Shrek thing instead. Onions. Layers.)

SO many people coming to UA for help don't go unrewarded thanks to your tireless efforts. You're a machine and a marvel.
Keep going. You're the hero we deserve and need.
D'Oh, see, you made me do it again. That's it. You're getting nothing more until 100K. :-p

I was really hoping theDBGuy was ironically going to just not reply to this post after seeing so many responses without his tongue.gif

Well done!

The DbGuy is a remarkably kind, humble and helpful person,
People like that inspire me to do my best.
Someone who helps someone else with no expectation of the favor returned is super special.
The best of the best that we can only hope to emulate.
