TIMMER (or anyone), How did you get the Boxes with Scrolling list of names for thanks in the upper left and right of the table. I cant seem to add a row or cell that shows up. It keep making everything I already have smaller and smaller.

Gang,
Please understand that I am obviously a complete newbie to all this (COULD YA TELL? :-[) and have absolutely zero idea what I am doing. I sure hope I am not being a pain in anyone's butt. I cant thank you enough for this help.  :)

Thx all.

"Toolbox click and drag where need be" does not work. I am unable to drag anything from the tool box into the main screen. I had already created the "THANKS" box in the toolbox (yay me). But when I try to drag it over, I see nothing. I try to add the cell to the table where I want it by clicking outside the existing rows, add cell,  but nothing. I don't see anywhere that says "Add Column". I see "Add Cell" and "Column Properties".

I think I am just going to let this go. You guys have all been great but I just cant seem to get the jist of this and I do not wish to take advantage of your generosity.

I'll just go wqith the basic screen elemnts which will do the trick nicely.

Thanks Gang.

Keep in mind, HitShappens, that Timmer is using the beta version of 2.6, and you're using 2.5.11.  There are some pretty big differences between the two, including the ability to drag-and-drop on the Layout tab.

Re: Newbie here Need help with Charity tourny (UPDATE)

Hi Gang,

Just an update for anyone interested. The tourny went off like clockwork. Pun intended. I can't thank you guys enough for all your help. It would hot have been possible without your help and I thank you for it.

The goal was to raise $15K for Tom and his Fiance to help pay off the medical bills he has been hit with.

After expenses, we raised $35,000!!!.

I had many players ask me what the program was that I was using and could not have given TD a higher recommendation to all of them.

Thanks again.

Best,
Hit.
